Ukraine has allocated UAH 200 million for the purchase of personal protective equipment.

Deputy Health Minister - Chief State Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Liashko said this at a briefing on March 27, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"About UAH 200 million has been allocated for the purchase of personal protective equipment, reagents for laboratories, personal protective equipment for employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the National Police, and border guards," he said.
