Ukraine has begun receiving more than 9,000 liters of surface disinfectant from NATO's pandemic stockpile.
According to European Truth, this is stated in a statement on the Alliance's website.
"The supply was coordinated by NATO's Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Center (EADRCC) and the Republic of Latvia in response to Ukraine's request for international assistance in connection with COVID-19," the statement said.
The disinfectant will be issued to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine and its border detachments at checkpoints across the country.
The disinfectant is manufactured by a Latvian company. Assistance and transportation to Ukraine were funded by Latvia as part of their contribution to NATO's Pandemic Trust Fund.
Following this delivery of aid to Ukraine, NATO is expected to receive new aid in the coming weeks, including mobile X-ray machines, negative pressure chambers, biological protection coveralls and portable oxygen generators.
The NATO Pandemic Response Trust Fund manages stocks of medical equipment and supplies through donations or targeted procurement to provide immediate assistance to needy allies or partners.
