MOSCOW, June 23 (Itar-Tass) - The state of health of legendary engineer Mikhail Kalashnikov is of moderate severity, a source at Russia’s Healthcare Ministry told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“He is suffering from thrombosis of small branches of the pulmonary artery,” the source said. “The condition is of moderate severity.”
The ministry is presently choosing a hospital to take the engineer.
Russia’s emergency situations ministry /EMERCOM/ has sent to Izhevsk its Il-76 plane to fetch him for medical tests in Moscow, the ministry’s spokesperson Irina Rossius told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“Due to necessary medical tests, the doctors made a decision to send Mikhail Timofeyevich to a Moscow hospital,” she said.

On May 17, 93-year-old Mikhail Kalashnikov at recommendation of his doctor was invited and taken to hospital for monitoring of his state. He received correction of the treatment, and on May 30 he was released from the hospital.
