Ukraine's Embassy in U.S. responds to Musk's initiative on ventilators

Ukraine's Embassy in the United States has asked Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk to provide medical ventilators to Ukraine.

The embassy wrote this on its Twitter account.

"Ukraine is the second-largest country in Europe with a population of nearly 40 mln citizens. The pandemic situation in Ukraine is approaching its peak, April is going to be the hardest. People in hospitals need ventilators. We are ready to cooperate!" the tweet reads.

Earlier, former Ukrainian Health Minister Ulana Suprun asked Musk to hand over ventilators to Ukraine.

Musk earlier proposed delivering ventilators to hospitals worldwide to treat COVID-19 patients.

"We have extra FDA-approved ventilators. Will ship to hospitals worldwide within Tesla delivery regions," he tweeted, noting that the device and shipping cost are free.
