U.S. to send second batch of medical ventilators to Russia

The United States will send a second batch of ventilators to Russia on Saturday, May 30, as part of an aid to combat the spread of coronavirus infection, stated Patrick O’Connor, A spokesman for medical equipment manufacturer Vyaire Medical, RIA Novosti reports.

“These 150 LTV 2200 ventilators will certainly be shipped on Saturday,” O’Connor said.

The spokesman for Vyaire Medical noted that this time the delivery of ventilators will be carried out not through the Ministry of Defense, but through the Agency for International Development (USAID).

According to Vyaire’s website, LTV devices are specifically designed for the dynamic environment of portable ventilation, whether in-home care, intra-hospital transport or emergency care settings.

In April, the company began fulfilling a $407 million contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. By the end of June, Vyaire Medical is expected to produce 22,000 medical ventilators.

Earlier, on May 21, a military plane from the United States landed at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport, bringing the first 50 ventilators to Moscow’s N.I. Pirogov National Medical and Surgical Center.

According to the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, Russia has fully paid for the supply of this medical equipment.

    Did expect to get them for free? At least they won’t set your hospitals on fire.

  • Give those murderers nothing. Not commercially, not humanitarian. Friendly countries should be prioritized. Why can’t the putlerstanis get their stuff from their chicom friends?
    Does Trump know that Ukrainian servicemen are being murdered on their own land daily? Does he know that innocent civilians, including children, are still being murdered this year by putinazi scum?
