An Il-76 airplane of the Russian Emergencies Ministry with Anatoly Korenkov, wounded Interenergoservis official, left Baghdad at 12.00 Moscow time, the ministry's aircraft service told RIA Novosti.
"A team of rescuers and doctors with a reanimobile and other equipment are on board the Il-86. They will give Mr. Korenkov medical aid during the flight," the Emergencies Ministry said.
The plane will arrive at Ramenskoye airport (the Moscow region) in four hours, RIA Novosti's interlocutor noted.
Russian Anatoly Korenkov was badly wounded on May 26 when the bus carrying Interenergoservis officials was attacked by unknown criminals. Two people were killed and eight wounded as a result.
Most Interenergoservis officials were evacuated by the Emergencies Ministry on Ma 27-28 and June 4. However, doctors prohibited to carry Anatoly Korenkov, who was in the coma.
On Thursday medics of the American military hospital allowed to carry the patient in connection with improvements in his health. Anatoly Korenkov was operated by American doctors for three times in Baghdad.
The doctors gave a written permission to transport Korenkov who is in stable condition now.
