MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. A plane of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has airlifted to Moscow 15 severely ill children from Ukraine’s Donbass, the ministry press service told Tass on Friday.
The plane that took off from Rostov-on-Don, a city in the Rostov region bordering on Ukraine, landed at Ramenskoye airfield outside Moscow at 18:55 Moscow time, with 15 seriously ill children from the Donetsk and Lugansk regions on board.
The children have different diagnoses, but they all need highly-qualified and high-tech medical aid, which they cannot receive in full in troubled Donbass.
