Thanking the association, Chargé d'Affaires at the Ukrainian Embassy Nataliya Zhykina said that the gifts are a great encouragement for the Ukrainian people, thus showing the two peoples’ friendship and solidarity.
According to Nataliya Zhynkina, as the novel coronavirus spreads, shortages for medical equipment have become a problem for Ukraine.
"We are very touched by the affection of Vietnamese friends. The Embassy is very grateful to receive the gift from the Vietnam - Ukraine Friendship Association. We will consult with the Ministry of Health of Ukraine to purchase medical supplies and will immediately transfer Vietnam's aid package to Ukraine," she said.
She also highly appreciated Vietnam's leading role in strengthening solidarity among countries around the world in tackling the pandemic and expressed her desire for Vietnam to continue to maintain the effectiveness of its measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and quickly restore socio-economic growth, adding that the country’s experience should be learnt by others.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, many friendship associations under VUFO have shown solidarity with international friends in combating COVID-19, by mobilizing funds from individials and businesses in Vietnam to purchase medical supplies as well as raising cash donations.
The aid illustrates Vietnam’s continued willingness to assist other countries on a bilateral and multilateral basis to the best of its abilities even as it continues to remain cautious about managing its own coronavirus challenge at home.
