MOSCOW, June 29, 7:05 /ITAR-TASS/. A Russian Emergencies Ministry plane has delivered five Russians hurt in a road accident in India to Moscow, the Russian Emergencies Ministry spokesperson, Alexander Drobyshevsky, told Tass.
“An Il-76 plane landed at the Ramenskoye airfield near Moscow. It is equipped with three medical modules in which the patients had been placed during the flight,” he said.
Ambulances took them for treatment to Moscow clinics straight from the airfield.
A microbus with 13 Russians fell into Bhagirathi River in Uttarakhand, northern India, on June 10. All of them where Hindu pilgrims who were making a private trip to the Gangotri village considered to be one of the main centers of Hindu pilgrimage.
