The second plane with protective equipment for doctors, police, and military arrived at the Boryspil airport. Deputy Chairman of the President’s Office Kyrylo Tymoshenko wrote this on his Facebook page.
According to him, there are 300 thousand respirators, 35 thousand protective suits, 1.8 million ordinary medical masks and other protective equipment onboard.
“Now this cargo goes to the logistics warehouse and leaves for every region of Ukraine afternoon. The plane takes off at night and goes to China for the next cargo batch,” Tymoshenko wrote.
He also noted that starting from Tuesday, there will be two additional aircraft, which ‘will help pharmacy chains quickly fill the market with cheap masks and other means of protection.’
