MOSCOW, April 15 (Itar-Tass) -- Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has thanked the Belgian authorities for the help provided for the Russian children injured in the bus crash.
"First, I wanted just to thank our Belgian partners for the help. It is always connected with the mobility of actions of authorities, in whose territory a tragedy occurs," Medvedev said during a meeting with vice-premiers on Monday.
The premier noted that the Russian Emergencies Ministry also acted promptly.
Medvedev asked Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin, who is chairman of the inter-governmental commission, to convey the thanks to the Belgian side.
All the main decisions have been taken, the premier said. Flights were organized promptly to take the people to Russia. Those who are in more serious condition remain there.
Six people injured in the bus crash remain in Belgian hospitals. Three adults can be discharged already this Monday. The other three teenagers are in serious condition. EMERCOM doctors who arrived in Belgium overnight will decide whether it is possible to take them to Russia.
The bus crash occurred 10 kilometres away from Antwerp at about 06:30 local time (08:30 Moscow time) on Sunday. The bus, which was carrying 31 schoolchildren aged from 12 to 17 and nine accompanying adults, rammed through the highway fence, ran off the road and overturned. Five people died, including three Russians. One of them is a teenager. Two drivers, citizens of Poland, died in the crash. Nineteen people were injured. Thirteen of them received slight injuries.
