NDO/VNA – The Vietnamese Government has sent medical masks to the Vietnamese community in central Russia to help them cope with complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic in Russia.

The masks were transported to Russia on a recent flight of the Vietnam Airlines to bring Vietnamese in Russia back to Vietnam.

The Vietnam Consulate General in Ekaterinburg on June 3 handed over part of the masks to Vietnamese associations in the city. It will continue to distribute masks to Vietnamese living in other localities in the region.

Vietnam arranged a Vietnam Airline flight to bring home more than 340 citizens from Russia in May.

The flight, which departed from Moscow on May 12, carried children under the age of 18, students without a place to stay because of school and dormitory closures, the elderly, sick people, tourists and people whose visas had expired but could not leave the country.
