Russia’s Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights’ Member Yelizaveta Glinka, also known as Doctor Lisa, on Friday flew 19 seriously ill children from Donbass to Moscow for treatment.


“Today, we took 19 seriously ill children from the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s republics (DPR and LPR) who need urgent high-tech medical assistance. We have already arrived in Rostov-on-Don and we are now getting on the plane,” Doctor Lisa told the Donetsk News Agency (DNA).


Russia’s Ministry of Emergencies provided a special plane to deliver the children to Moscow.


In 2015, Yelizaveta Glinka’s Righteous Help Foundation sent more than 350 children from DPR and LPR to Russia for treatment. The foundation assists children under the age of 16 who are seriously ill and need long-term combination therapy.
