MOSCOW, October 15. /TASS/. A plane of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) has evacuated from Syria to Moscow 38 Russian nationals and nationals of Ukraine and Belarus who decided to leave the country, deputy head of EMERCOM’S National Crisis Management Center Oleg Voronov told TASS.
Earlier, the National Crisis Management Center said 40 people had arrived from Syria. “Thirty-eight people who wished to leave the zone of a military conflict, arrived on board an EMERCOM plane at night,” Voronov said, adding that there were 32 Russian nationals among them, including five children, four Ukrainian nationals and two citizens of Belarus.
An Il-76 plane of the Emergencies Ministry took off from the Syrian city of Latakia, landing at the Moscow Domodedovo airport overnight to Wednesday.
Medics, rescuers and psychologists were on board to help the passengers if necessary. On its flight to Syria on Tuesday, the plane airlifted 17 tons of humanitarian aid.
According to the United Nations, more than 191,000 people have been killed in a civil war in Syria that started in March 2011. The real figure may be much higher, the UN says.
