Press release on Russian humanitarian aid for the Republic of Guinea
On July 10, the Russian Defence Ministry made a special flight to deliver humanitarian goods, including ventilators, disposable supplies for disease treatment and diagnosis, Russia-made test systems and reagents for COVID-19 testing, to the Republic of Guinea with a view to enhancing its national potential to counter the spread of the novel coronavirus infection. Russian humanitarian aid was rendered gratis to Guinea by the United Company RUSAL and the Federal Service for the Oversight of Consumer Protection and Welfare.
Part of the medical equipment is supposed to be used to finish outfitting the RUSAL-established Scientific Clinical and Diagnostic Centre of Epidemiology and Microbiology in Kindia and the infectious disease ward of the Fria hospital, also opened with funding from the Russian company in June 2020.
The return flight will carry Russian citizens wishing to come back home from Guinea and Sierra Leone.
