MOSCOW, April 14 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) dispatched an airplane Il-76 to bring back to Russia the children injured in a major road accident in Belgium.
The airplane is fitted with five medical modules, where the wounded people will be undergoing treatment during the flight, the EMERCOM information department told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“The airplane is carrying a brigade of the doctors from the emergency task force Tsetrospas and psychologists,” the EMERCOM information department said.
Russian doctors will decide in Belgium whether some wounded people can be transported.
Meanwhile, a Russian emergency airplane Yak-42 will take off at 18:00 Moscow time from the Moscow airport Domodedovo to Belgium to bring the Russian teenagers, who were not wounded in the road accident, back to Russia.
