“This is a beautiful day. Long live Cuba! Long live Fidel!” cried out former Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma, who traveled to Cuba as special envoy of the current Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovych, to attend the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the program of medical care to children affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

IN TUNE WITH UKRAINIAN TRADITION, FORMER PRESIDENT LEONID KUCHMA IS WELCOMED WITH BREAD AND SALT BY CHILDREN CARED FOR IN TARARA AND THEIR RELATIVES.
 
On Monday morning, former president Kuchma and his wife Lyudmila toured the Tarara facilities where Ukrainian children are cared for, and restated to the press that Cuba and Fidel will be remembered forever by Ukrainian children and their families.
 
“There is no greater happiness for their mothers, and for my country at large, than seeing these children recover their health. They are now healthy thanks to the doctors and to Cuban solidarity,” he remarked.

Former president Kuchma pointed out that his country’s current government will strive to substantially improve relations with Cuba, and will likewise provide the support required by this medical care program.
 
At the meeting with the press, Ukrainian ambassador to Cuba Tatiana Saienko expressed “our deepest gratitude to all doctors and other personnel who have contributed to save lives and have put a smile back on our children’s faces.”

Olga Denisova, current Deputy President of the International Chernobyl Fund, emotionally recalled the time 20 years ago when she first came to Cuba on board the first plane bringing Chernobyl children. She was accompanied by her son, who had been affected by radiation. She also recalled that Fidel gave them his uniform cap, on which he had signed his name, and gave out neckerchiefs to the children, who had come here “in search of hope.”
 
Dr. Julio Medina described the program of medical care to children affected by the Chernobyl accident as a dignity endeavor in which people improve their human worth by helping to save lives, the greatest contribution of the program being its human value.
