MOSCOW, April 15 (Itar-Tass) - A video bridge will be held between Brussels and Volgograd on Monday so that the teenagers, who are undergoing treatment after a major road accident in Belgium, will be able to talk with their parents in a video telecommunications session, Russian Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov said on Monday.
“Today we will hold a video bridge, the injured children should talk to their parents,” he said at a meeting of the Russian governmental committee.
Seven injured people, including a child, who is not wounded, but is waiting for his parents, remain at the hospitals now, head of the task force of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations Sergei Yudin said from Brussels. “The doctors of the emergency task force Tsentrospas and the all-Russia centre of emergency medicine Zashchita are estimating the condition of the wound people.
