Russia Sends Plane with Medical Supplies to U.S. for COVID-19

(AP) – Russia is sending a plane with medical supplies such as masks to help the U.S. fight the coronavirus pandemic. The plane will arrive today after President Trump accepted an offer earlier this week from Russian President Vladimir Putin to send personal protective equipment and other gear.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs tweeted a photo of its largest cargo aircraft filled with boxes of masks and equipment to “help save the lives of American citizens.”

Trump Administration officials say the U.S. will immediately put items to use that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
