Equipment for the fight against Covid-19 worth a total of 175,000 euros was handed over during a video conference between Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Federal Republic of Germany to Ukraine Anka Feldhusen and Chairman of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine Mykola Chechetkin. All this equipment, noted Feldhusen, should help prevent the spread of Covid-19 in Ukraine.
Anka Feldhusen also noted that Germany handed over to Ukraine vehicles virus spreading with loudspeakers which are informing citizens about threats of the virus.
The Chairman of the State Emergency Service , addressing the Ambassador of Germany, noted that Germany always helped Ukraine in difficult times.
Mykola Chechetkin reminded that at the beginning of the Russian Federation’s military aggression in the East of Ukraine and in conditions of the Crimea’s illegal annexation, the German government provided substantial assistance to civilians and the local community. At a time when thousands of people in the east were left homeless, the German side provided temporary accommodation for internally displaced people from the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Ukraine has always been the first to respond to emergency situations that have occurred in Ukraine, such as the fire at an oil base near the town of Vasylkiv in Kyiv region, and the attacks on the city of Avdiivka in Donetsk region, resulted in deactivation and dehydration of the city, and explosions at military warehouses in Kalinivka near Vinnitsa and near the town of Ichnya in Chernigiv region and others.
” Therefore, – noted Mykola Chechetkin in his speech, – I personally and on behalf of the State Service of Ukraine for Emergency Situations would like to thank you and the German Government for such an important support provided to us.
Anka Feldhusen replied:”I wish you and your brave women and men, who every day serve the society, to fulfill your tasks with this equipment even better and safer. You can rely on Germany.”
