According to Russian diplomatic sources, the Russian Federation provided technical and medical aid to Algeria to fight the COVID-19 epidemic. Through the last week of April the aid shipments by two planes of the Algerian Air Force and one charter plane brought a substantial amount of coveralls for medical personnel, thermometers, surgical masks, multi-layer masks, sampling kits, and tests. The Russian defense export-import agency Rosoboronexport which is in charge of military co-operation with Algeria and other MENA nations sponsored these charity operations. This mission was carried out despite the absence of air links between two nations.
