"A batch of humanitarian aid from the Embassy of India has arrived in Ukraine. In total, during the full-scale Russian invasion, the Republic of India has handed over 187 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Ukrainian healthcare facilities from the government and private pharmaceutical companies," the Ministry of Health of Ukraine informs.
The assistance provided by the Embassy of India includes patient monitors, antibiotics, saline, and consumables. The humanitarian cargo will be distributed among healthcare facilities in the frontline and adjacent regions.
“Currently, the Ministry of Health verifies the needs of regional healthcare facilities and provides them with the necessary medicines and medical devices. We are grateful to everyone who comes to the aid of our hospitals today and helps our physicians save even more lives. Since the beginning of the war, India has significantly supported our healthcare system. However, now we ask the country to strengthen this support by terminating cooperation with the Russian pharmaceutical market," said Deputy Health Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Yaremenko.
As reported, since the beginning of the full-scale war, Ukraine has received a total of 4,485 tonnes of medical humanitarian goods to the tune of UAH 5,963 million.
