First the ventilator, produced in California, are ready to be shipped to Moscow on Wednesday. Another 150 vehicles will be sent to Russia on may 26.
The US government fully paid the cost of vehicles, equipment start-up and the cost of shipping. In total, according to representatives of the administration, expenses were $ 4.7 million.
Ventilators will be delivered to Russia military aircraft, as between the United States and Russia currently has almost no commercial flights.
