    Moscow rescue workers and firefighters arranged a charity event on 27 December, congratulating patients of the Morozov Children's Hospital (Morozovskaya Dgkb), the Department of Civil Defence, Emergencies and Fire Safety of Moscow (Gochsipb) told Sputnik.

    A festive rescue party of 60 Santa Clauses arrived on the roof of the hospital and appeared in the windows of rooms with the help of special equipment.
