MOSCOW, June 19. /TASS/. Darya Starikova from the town of Apatity, Murmansk Region, has been transported to Moscow today for treatment in Moscow’s Herzen Oncology Research Institute following her address to the president during his annual question and answer session (Direct Line with Vladimir Putin), Russia’s Health Ministry reported today.
"A special aircraft from the Russian Emergencies Ministry landed in Moscow, carrying Apatity resident, Darya Starikova, on board for treatment in Moscow’s Herzen Oncology Research Institute following her address to the president during the annual Q&A session," the ministry reported.
