1,5 million apiece: Russia delivered dozens of ventilators to the USA

Recently сообщалосьthat Russia sent medical aid to the United States to combat the epidemic of coronavirus infection COVID-19 raging there. At the same time, some users of social networks drew attention to the fact that from the An-124 Ruslan plane, which delivered humanitarian aid to New York from Moscow, Aventa-M mechanical ventilation devices (IVL), worth 1,5 million rubles for thing.

It is noted that the specified mechanical ventilation is made by UPZ - OJSC Ural Instrument-Making Plant (part of the Rostec state corporation). These are high-end mobile devices working on inhalation / exhalation, equipped with a built-in flow generator and modern touch control.

They are equipped with a 12-inch display that displays all digital parameters and respiratory graphics, including real-time monitoring of FiO2, EtCO2. There is a battery and the ability to transmit information through a wireless interface. These ventilators are intended for use for both adults and children.

Some commentators were outraged by such a gift to the Americans. According to them, before the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, there were more than 160 thousand ventilation machines, and now, in the midst of an epidemic, the Americans have even more such equipment. They believe that in the case of the spread of infection in Russia, some of the Russians may not have enough of such an apparatus. At the same time, other users specified that only 600 units per month are produced in Russia.

We remind you that according to monitoring sources monitoring the pandemic, there are already more than 216 thousand patients in the United States. 5149 people died, 8878 people recovered. The epicenter of infection is New York.

I must add that recently, US President Donald Trump said that according to experts, "many millions of Americans" will fall ill. Moreover, if everything goes according to the “successful” scenario, then “150-220 thousand Americans will die”, and if the situation develops pessimistically, “1,5-2,2 million Americans will die”.

      Fact: seriously ill Italians were delivered from Italy to Germany for treatment ...

      How America can cure millions of people without honey. insurance? (But they have no queues):
      - Throw patients on self-medication, self-survival (not prestigious)
      - To borrow money for treatment for patients (business will not understand)
      - Take them somewhere, but under someone else's responsibility, if only they would give consent ... (Although Mexico is closer)
      They can extradite infected prisoners from American prisons ...

      In addition to the Americans, VIPs from the near abroad can be sent to us with relatives and friends ...

      This is not about their infected citizens, but strangers who can be treated for various reasons to the detriment of Russian citizens.
      They helped those, it’s good, but one should not agree with any help.

    The fact that Putin did a number of wrong things has already been warned. Only, it is evident that in our temples there are the same hucksters as in the government - to suggest to SOME. And if someone believes that you should not pay attention to this, then why are churches being built on every corner? There are already more of these churches than schools!

    And it just gave or sold?

    Russia sold masks and medical equipment to the United States, rather than donated. This was announced in the US State Department. The State Department said that following a telephone conversation between US President Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin on March 30, the United States agreed to purchase medical products from the Russian Federation - medical supplies, including fans and personal protective equipment. The materials were handed over to representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency in New York on April 1, noted in a statement by State Department spokesman Morgan Organagus.

    A good deed is not done based on gratitude; it is done from the heart. Why cry for the ingratitude of the West? This is a widely known fact. You pretend as if you are not aware that all cultures have developed on a religious worldview. But the West and Russia, being Christian, are in different positions. Wanting to subjugate all Christians to themselves, the popes fanned hatred towards the Orthodox in their children, and this has already eaten to the marrow of Europeans. Therefore, there have been, are and will be attempts to collapse Russia by the West.
    Almost all commentators, except those subject to liberalism, were outraged by how EU countries steal from each other the means of combating coronavirus, ridiculed them, and now argue how they are. I will help you in trouble, but what will you give me for this? Want to reach the level of dehumanization of Europeans?

    In principle, I myself am against such gifts, if they all were ill there in the USA.
    But we cannot behave like savages, and besides, this is a strong blow to the authority of the "gikhimon", who can hardly stand on his feet. This is a blow in the information war against anti-Russian propaganda, it is raising Russia's prestige in the international arena. Such decisions are not made from the ceiling, all the pros and cons are weighed.

      A man in a white coat is a complete stupid person, if he does not understand why you need to wear masks. His ignorance, if not criminal, then rolls over unambiguously! Distributing such videos is also a disservice to people.
      Yes, the mask is not able to protect its wearer from the virus. And not only for that Indistinctly voiced reason that he is talking about. There are also eyes that such a mask does not protect.
      But the mask is still able to reduce the transmission of the virus from the infected to other people. Retain its wet discharge when talking, coughing, sneezing. And since the infected person himself sometimes can not even suspect about it (incubation and prodromal periods), it is better if masks are worn without exception on everyone who is at least in an enclosed space. Remove this nonsense if you still have at least a little conscience!

    It's funny Without arguing about the correctness or incorrectness of assistance to Italy and the USA, we have. A gas station country, in which production is destroyed and lives only through the sale of minerals, suddenly delivers high-tech products to the most developed countries in the world. And who lied about ruined Russia?
