"When this action was planned, we decided that, despite the name" Children out of politics, "we will not talk about the war. But life is different. Behind each child, who was seriously injured, there was a private and, very often, tragic story" - said the leading, offering to see the plot.
"Children out of politics - is the continuation of our whole life, - he said.
We help children regardless of nationality, religion and political orientation. "Dr. Roshal said that the Research Institute of Emergency Children's Surgery and traand Traumatology is the only children's pediatric team in the world, ready to fly at any time and anywhere in the world, to help the children. It does not matter what side of the front those kids are. ""We often work in war, helping the wounded children, no matter on whose territory they have suffered. In Yugoslavia, we have worked with both hands,in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, Chechnya, we were during the conflicts as well as in Israel and Palestine. Now, all the injured children from the Ukraine are sent to us - we treat. "
L.M.Roshal showed the participants of the press conference Wanya Voronov’s photos, also undergoing treatment at the institute. "I'll show you a terrible picture - it is Vanya from Donbass - no legs, one arm and blind. We are now fighting for his second eye. I have seen many poor children in my life, but this ... with unknown future !!! When I got up a flurry of emotions, I also wrote a letter. "
Letters were written to Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, Petro Poroshenko, and Vladimir Putin. The doctor invited to spend "Minsk" talks at the bedside of the boy. "I wrote to them:" If it happens to your child, how would you react? ". The answer from the Merkel’s device: "Merkel can not respond personally. From the very beginning of the conflict the Chancellor advocated the stabilization of the conflict in Ukraine, "- quoted Roshal. - And not a word about this grief! Children should not suffer for their parents and for people who do not understand what they do”. Finally, Leonid thanked all those present in the audience for the support.
At the press conference were representatives of the traditional religions of Russia, who supported the charity event "Children out of politics."
"We all live in the world, where suffering is and where each of our lives end in death. However, this world was created by God, not in order that we were dying, but for our living forever, - said chairman of the Synodal Department of charity, Bishop Panteleimon of Orekhovo-Zuevo. - Therefore, the death of every human is experienced as a tragedy. When children are suffering and dying - it's really scary, it is impossible to accept. "
Vicar of His Holiness Patriarch thanked the director of the institute Dr. Roshal and his fellow employees for their good work every day to save the lives of children. "It is important that we all remember the tragedy of the children, and that anyone can help them," - said bishop Panteleimon.
First Deputy Chairman of the Russian Muftis Council Rushan Hazrat Abbyasov also stated the need for assistance for child victims. "Islam teaches us to be compassionate. The Prophet Muhammad said that the children - a paradise butterflies. Every child, regardless of national, religious beliefs, to adulthood is in spiritual purity ... We all need to help, not to be indifferent to children who fall into very difficult situation, "- said Abbyasov.
Rushan Hazrat also noted that in all the mosques the Muslims pray for peace and prosperity on the Ukrainian lands, and in conflict zones around the world.
The action "Children out of politics" has supported Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar, sent his greetings to participants and guests of the press conference, the President of the Russian Paralympic Committee, member of the Board of Trustees of the Fund, Vladimir Lukin, quoted the immortal words of Fyodor Dostoevsky: “There is no such price that would have cost a tear of the child.” He noted that the Paralympic Committee and the Research Institute of Emergency Children's Surgery and Traumatology are engaged in "related matters." "We have created a young team, there are children's disability teams. We are ready to connect and collaborate ", - said V.Lukin.
The professor noted that, through the creation of a charitable fund, hundreds of families have hope for recovery of the child, as the funds collected by the fund, are directed to the treatment and rehabilitation of children, to those services that are not paid by the state now.
"In the year of the fund, we helped 18 children, including 4 children from the Donetsk region. But there are more, at times, children with serious injuries, requiring long-term treatment and rehabilitation. When a child receives a serious injury, especially neurotrauma, it is the destruction of the integrity of not only the child, but also his inner circle. Often the family can not withstand such tests and is being destroyed. As a result, all the hardships borne by one of the parents and sometimes grandparents. We have a lot of such examples. Therefore, first of all, we are going to provide charitable assistance to children with severe injuries from low-income, socially disadvantaged families, those, in fact, no one can help but us.
The Charity event was also supported by all loved and respected actors of theater and cinema: Alla Surikova, Armen Dzhigarkhanyan, Mikhail Boyarsky, Dmitri Pevtsov, Leonid Yarmolnik, Olga Kabo, Fedor Dobronravov and Elena Zakharova.
"Positive and the victory are united us. We want to escape somehow negativity and pain, internally. Important in this action - to inform the public thought: "And if the grief happened to your child?" – said, at a press conference, Dmitry Pevtsov. - I think that when people realize this, they will understand: someone else's grief does not happen. For my part, as an artist, I wish to do anything to bring to the action as much as possible people. "
Leonid Yarmolnik offered to help children with holding a three-day charity marathon and with the support of all the country's media asking each person to list at least a ruble. "A ruble - it is a little. But we will gather more than 150 million. And the money will go to the children ", - said Leonid Yarmolnik.
"All those tragedies of children - it is a consequence. Their reason is our losing morality, - said Mikhail Boyarsky. - Such actions cause to think again and realize – what shall we say there ..., when it is our time and we are asked to respond. There we will be asked about what exactly did you do to help someone. That's what is important. " The actor admitted that he does not know how to engage in charity and asked to teach him. In response to these words, Bishop Panteleimon suggested Mikhail Sergeyevich studying at the School of volunteer service "Mercy", even promised training on-site in St.Petersburg.
All the stars, who supported the action, were talking about their readiness to help children with serious injuries, organizing various charitable events (visiting the children at the institute, holding charity concerts and performances, organizing charity marathons), involving their colleagues and the media.
