MOSCOW, March 12. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry is sending a special aircraft to take ten severely ill children from eastern Ukraine to Moscow for treatment, the ministry’s official spokesman said on Thursday.
"The children are the residents of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and the youngest of them is under 12 months of age," spokesman Alexander Drobyshevsky said.
"They have various diagnoses, but all of them need urgent highly experienced and high-tech medical care, which cannot be provided to them in full in the Donbas medical facilities due to the difficult situation," he said.
The Il-76 aircraft has the modern equipment and special medical modules allowing controlling and supporting the severely ill persons and providing the necessary assistance to them during the flight.
The children and their parents will be accompanied by medical experts and psychologists from the Emergencies Ministry and will be taken to special medical facilities where they will get the necessary assistance.
Russian children's rights commissioner Pavel Astakhov said earlier some 200 Ukrainian children who need urgent medical aid would be brought to Moscow’s hospitals.
