Ukraine dispatches five tonnes of disinfectants to Italy

Five tonnes of disinfectants were dispatched by Ukraine’s National Guard aircraft to Rome on Wednesday morning.

"This is the second batch of aid to Italy. We dispatch five tonnes of special sanitizers that will be used to disinfect hospitals and medical professionals' hands. The alcohol content is 70%. The sanitizer meets the requirements of the World Health Organization. We did not allocate any additional funds to purchase it. Our units are provided with disinfectants,” said Deputy Interior Minister Serhiy Honcharov, the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine informs.

According to the official, the Government of Italy thanked Ukraine for the support.

“Two teams of Ukrainian doctors have already started to work in two hospitals in Italy. Every evening, we have online conferences with doctors who tell us about medical, epidemiological and prevention measures there. This is the experience we can use today to fight the virus. Our doctors are in a good mood, they feel the support of Italian colleagues and our diaspora,” Honcharov added.

Ambassador of Italy to Ukraine Davide La Cecilia thanked President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and Interior Minister Arsen Avakov for the assistance and support much needed by the Italian doctors.

 “The Italian side appreciates this contribution. Both colleagues and patients in Italy gave Ukrainian doctors a cordial welcome. They will be given access to treatment protocols. We are very proud of this cooperation,” the ambassador said.

As reported, a group of 20 Ukrainian doctors from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Health Ministry agencies started a humanitarian mission in two cities in the Italian region of Marche.
