A child injured in a car accident in Artsakh was taken to Yerevan by a helicopter of Russian peacekeepers, Artsakh State Minister Artak Beglaryan said.
As a result of the car accident which happened on January 19 in Chartar, four children were injured, three of which were of medium severity and one child was severely injured. By the order of doctors, he had to be transported to Yerevan. The Government of the Republic of Artsakh addressed to the peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation with the request to provide a helicopter, which was accepted by them, however because of yesterday's bad weather conditions the flight took place this morning. The child is now in Yerevan under the care of doctors.
“His life is not in danger, but heavy and complicated surgeries are planned and hopefully his health can be restored. This is the first time since the war that such an urgent need for air transport has arisen, and fortunately, the problem has been solved. I would like to express my special gratitude to Major General Andrey Volkov, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Peacekeeping Forces, for his prompt and effective solution to this humanitarian problem. This is another example of the humanitarian activities of Russian peacekeepers in Artsakh and our cooperation," Beglaryan said.
