According to the Service's chief Ivan Bakanov, the plane also delivered the first batch of humanitarian aid to Ukraine from the UAE with a total cargo of 10 tons so as to fight the Covid-19 coronavirus.
In particular, we are talking about personal protective equipment: 15 thousand medical gowns, 20 thousand protective masks, 500 thousand gloves, 30 thousand pairs of protective shoes, 15 thousand overalls and six thousand liters of disinfectant.
"The humanitarian aid was received without raising funds from the state budget of Ukraine. All protective equipment will be directly transferred to domestic hospitals and doctors," the SBU officials stated.
As we reported before, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the planes with the medical means and tests of coronavirus continue to arrive in Ukraine.
“During a week, our planes supply from China and South Korea everything necessary. Four planes have already arrived; we except another four today and on the weekends. The result of the one-week delivery is almost half a million respirators, 150,000 of single-use advanced suits, 100,000 of polymerase chain reaction tests and 200,000 reagent needed for polymerase chain reaction tests,” the president reported.
