La Stampa: 80% of humanitarian aid from Russia for Italy was useless
The publication notes that Russian assistance consisted of equipment for the disinfection of territories and other special equipment of this type, while, for example, China sent mainly medical masks and mechanical ventilation devices to Italy.
According to the publication, having supported Italy, Moscow pursues its political and diplomatic interests, and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte agreed to accept it in order to “ strengthen personal relations” with Moscow.
The newspaper draws attention to the fact that all Russian specialists are military men with high army ranks, not doctors.
“The Russian military moves freely throughout Italy, a few steps from NATO bases,” La Stampa emphasizes.
In Italy, more than 74 thousand people became infected with the coronavirus, more than 7,500 died.
