Donetsk, Dec 27 — DAN. Officers of Russia’s National Guard in Chukotka have fulfilled the wish of Yekaterina Kofanova from the Donetsk People’s Republic bringing her a coveted toy and a sweet box, the National Guard (Rosgvardia) press service said on Wednesday.

Katya, 6, wrote a letter to Santa Claus, which ended up in Russia’s northernmost “Christmas Tree of Wishes” in the Chukotka capital. Head of the Rosgvardia department for the Chukot Autonomous Area Mikhail Khitrunov who withdrew the letter learnt that Katya wanted a remote control car.

The military official sent his best wishes for the coming holidays in a video message to the girl promising that a Special Operations Santa Claus would travel more than 12,000 kilometers to deliver the gifts.

Together with her mother and elder sister, an eager Katya welcomed the guests who brought the coveted toy, a white teddy bear, the symbol of Chukotka, a sweet box and a bunch of flowers for Katya’s mother.

“My daughter believes in miracles, so she writes to Santa every year, ” the girl’s mother said. “We didn’t expect this small wonder to happen on the New Year’s eve.”

Katya said that she had never had such toys before. The family named the white bear “Chukotka.” *jk
