A Russian military plane took six Syrian children with chronic illnesses for treatment at a St. Petersburg hospital on Wednesday. The children, aged from six to 14, and with different serious diseases, were saved from the territories under terrorist control, where they hadn’t been able to receive the necessary treatment and care for several years. They arrived with their parents at the Kirov Military Medical Academy, where they will stay for at least three weeks and will be provided with all the necessary therapy, including operations.
