Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky claims that there is enough oxygen in the Ukrainian hospitals. He said so during the session of the Congress of local and regional authorities in Odesa.

'As far as I know, there's enough of our oxygen, and the hospitals are well-supplied. But we also read and hear that certain media are saying: we have no oxygen in Ukraine", Zelensky said.

President also claimed he would like to hear from local administrations about their actual volumes of oxygen.

Due to the fact that two major Ukrainian plants stopped producing medical oxygen, the government decided to purchase the oxygen supplies from Poland. Healthcare Minister Viktor Lyashko recently said that in an interview with Ukrainska Pravda

"Given the fact that it (one of the plants, - 112 International) is located in western Ukraine, we contacted Poland, which is much faster than delivering the oxygen from Donetsk, Luhansk or Zaporizhya regions. Ministry of Infrastructure issued the necessary licenses quite quickly, in just one day,  and the distributor that supplies this oxygen brought a couple of vans from Poland and delivered the oxygen to hospitals", Lyashko said.

The hospitals didn't pay for the supplies, he added.
