The Russian military has delivered some 45 tons of presents collected by thousands of the country’s kids for children of the same ages in war-torn Syria. The gifts included Russian folk art handmade crafts and personal greetings.

The initiative, proposed by the children themselves, saw thousands of pupils from over 10 Russian regions taking part.
