Today, on April 8, a plane, loaded with humanitarian aid, has departed from Ukraine to Italy. 5,000 liters of disinfectant fluid will be delivered to Italian doctors. This was stated by Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Anton Herashchenko.

"We make this gesture of friendship and gratitude, remembering that Italian doctors are fighting daily for the lives of Ukrainians from our numerous diaspora. Unfortunately, four Ukrainians in Italy were unable to overcome the dangerous virus and died. But there is also good news: yesterday, a decline in the rate of increase in the number of registered COVID-19 cases has been recorded in Italy for the first time,” Herashchenko wrote.
