The Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu, within the framework of the All-Russian New Year’s charity event “Tree of Desires”, fulfilled the request of a child from Gorokhovets to take a military helicopter into the sky.

Earlier, the head of the military department removed from the tree a postcard from Kirill Ushakov from the Vladimir region, who dreamed of flying in a military helicopter and visiting the airfield.

The boy’s dream was helped by the pilots of the aviation squadron of the Western Military District on the territory of the joint-based airfield of Semyazino in Vladimir. Kirill and his sister, six-year-old Alice, were given the opportunity to fly in a helicopter.

After a conference call on Tuesday, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, head of the National Center for Defense Management of the Russian Federation, reported to the Minister of Defense: “Today, on your instructions, Kirill Ushakov’s dream of flying in a military helicopter has come true. Now Kirill is at the airport and is ready to share his impressions with you. “

Through video conference calls, the boy told the head of the military department that he flew in a helicopter, looked at combat aircraft at the airfield parking lot, ate delicious meals in the flight canteen and received many gifts from the military.

In conclusion, he asked to fly a helicopter again.

“Okay, Kirill. You just take your mom and dad with you, and your little sister if she wants to. Have a nice flight! Happy New Year to you! Health, all the best, ”said Sergei Shoigu.

The New Year’s charitable event “The Tree of Desires” is included in the presidential platform “Russia – the Land of Opportunities”. The promotion is being held for the fourth time. The Russian Defense Ministry is participating in it for the first time. According to the organizers, over 21 thousand wishes have been fulfilled in four years.
