A total of 10,000 Russian coronavirus testing systems have been transported to Belarus on a non-repayable basis, the Russian Embassy in Belarus reported on Saturday.

“This is one more episode. We, as fraternal peoples, supporting each other at a time when trouble comes to our homes, look into the future together,” stressed Russian Ambassador to Belarus Dmitry Mezentsev who met the humanitarian cargo.

According to the ambassador, the delivery of testing systems to Belarus confirms the allied nature of relations between the two countries. He stressed that the parties were ready to share their experiences with each other in the fight against the spread of coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Natalia Zhukova, Deputy Minister of Health and Chief Sanitary Doctor of Belarus, noted that Belarusian specialists had been in touch with their Russian counterparts amid the pandemic. She thanked Russia for its support.
