Russia billed the United States $ 660 thousand for humanitarian aid to fight the coronavirus, which was delivered on April 1 to the airport in New York, as the ABC News reported.

"The State Department received a final bill from the Russian government in the amount of $ 659,283," the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said.

According to FEMA, Russia delivered 45 mechanical ventilation devices, 4,000 gas masks M-95, 15,000 respirators, hand disinfectants, surgical gloves, and medical clothing.

Part of the equipment, according to sources, was useless. For example, ventilators are designed for a voltage of 220 volts, and in the USA they use 110 volts. M-95 gas masks are intended for the military and cover the entire face; they are unsuitable for caring for patients.

Initially, sending medical equipment from the Russian Federation to the United States was presented as a humanitarian action.

As we reported before, the Russian government is asking Italy to pay for the humanitarian aid sent, “forcing” Brussels to lift the sanctions.
