Most severely injured in Kyrgyz chaos brought to Moscow for medical treatment

Russia’s emergencies ministry plane has brought to Moscow six people who were severely injured in the Kyrgyz violence. They are being taken to Moscow hospitals for specialist treatment.

“These six patients need very special and long treatment. They will be taken to the best clinics in Moscow. Five of the patients have bullet wounds. One of them is a 5-year-old girl with a bullet in her back and a broken spine. The trip has been smooth and they're in a stable condition,” Emergencies Ministry spokesperson, Aleksey Salnikov said.

Russia’s Il-76 aircraft departed from Moscow region late Saturday with more than 5 tonnes of humanitarian aid onboard. The flight followed President Dmitry Medvedev’s promise to help the neighbouring country, suffering from the crisis.
