The Kremlin said the emergency aid was initiated on orders from President Vladimir Putin after he spoke with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Saturday, and will include eight mobile brigades of military medics and special disinfection vehicles.

The operation will see Russia’s top military specialists in virology and epidemics deploy to the hardest hit regions of Italy. The doctors and specialized equipment is being flown on nine Il-76 aircraft from an airfield outside Moscow.

A group of some 100 people is ready for the flight, which consists of leading specialists of the Russian Defense Ministry in the field of virology and epidemiology, who have major international experience in fighting against the epidemic along with modern equipment for diagnosing and carrying out disinfection efforts,” the ministry said.

Russia currently has only 306 confirmed cases and one death, most concentrated in Moscow. 

The country is also said to be well-stocked with necessary equipment which has been in short supply in some places in the West, such as ventilators.

Italy recorded its biggest jump in deaths yet throughout the crisis at 800 in a single 24-hour period — on Saturday.
