Putin to send medical supplies to United States

MOSCOW — A Russian plane loaded with medical equipment and protective medical gear was ready to takeoff for the United States on Tuesday, the Kremlin said, after President Vladimir Putin offered help to President Trump.

The two presidents discussed the novel coronavirus problem at length by phone Monday, Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday. They also discussed oil prices, agreeing that the current price was too low.

“In view of the current epidemic crisis in America, the Russian side offered aid in the form of medical equipment and protective gear. Trump accepted this aid of a humanitarian nature with gratitude,” Peskov said late Tuesday, adding that the flight was ready to depart before midnight Moscow time.

He said Putin offered the aid on the understanding that once the United States ramped up its own production, it would be ready to reciprocate with similar equipment and protective gear, should Russia need it.

No details were available on exactly what equipment was included in the cargo and whether ventilators were included. Trump thanked Putin for sending help during a Monday evening news conference.

“Throughout the day today technical discussions and preparations were carried out for a Russian flight which we now expect to depart before the end of today,” Peskov said. But he hinted at difficulties from some U.S. officials in finalizing arrangements for the flight in comments reported by Interfax.

More than a week ago, Russia sent 15 planeloads of equipment, testing kits, and experts whom it described as military virologists and epidemiologists to Italy, which has been hard hit by covid-19. The Russian teams have been engaged in disinfecting facilities in northern Italy.

Although Italy’s Ambassador to Russia Pasquale Terracciano said it was important that the cargo included 600 ventilators, Italian newspaper La Stampa cited an unnamed government official saying that 80 percent of the cargo Russia sent was useless.

"Putin is a compassionate leader."

You might want to ask the families of individuals who have mysteriously died and just happened to be people who challenged him or were his enemies.

Blood thirsty killers? I do not like killing, our government kills people quietly and they hire mercenaries to do it also. The only one who hates killing is God, but he relented when he saw the evil on the earth. He gave conditions under which killing could occur, and man then made his own rules and has been in wars ever since.

Yes, RIP Mort Drucker - who didn’t get a kick out of Mad Magazine at one time or another - Alfred E. Neumann for president!

“It’s a good one, but I like Goldfinger better”
That’s how Alfred E. might weigh in on the thread
