SANAA (Yemen), July 15 /TASS/. The Russian Emergency Ministry provided two planes to evacuate 118 people from the conflict zone in Yemen to Russia, a TASS correspondent reported.
The planes will arrive at Moscow’s international airport Domodedovo on Wednesday evening. The passengers will be accompanied by doctors from the Centrospas rescue team as well as psychologists from the ministry’s Center of emergency psychological aid.
