"Four children were injured in a car accident in Chartar on January 19, three of them with moderate and one with severe spinal fracture. Given the complexity and danger of this fracture, doctors advised to transport him to Yerevan by helicopter. The Government of Artsakh applied to the Russian peacekeeping forces with a request to provide a helicopter, which was granted by them, but due to bad weather yesterday, the flight took place this morning.

We hope he will be able to recover as much as possible," said the State Minister of Artsakh.
He added that this is the first time after the 2020 war that such an urgent need for the use of a helicopter has arisen, and, fortunately, the problem has been solved. "I would like to express special thanks to the Russian peacekeeping force, Commander Major-General Andrei Volkov, for resolving this urgent humanitarian problem quickly and effectively. This is another example of the humanitarian activities of Russian peacekeepers in Artsakh and our cooperation," Artak Beglaryan said.
