“Trump gratefully accepted this humanitarian aid,” Putin spokesman Dmitri Peskov told reporters. “Now that this situation has affected everyone without exception and is global, there is no alternative to joint action in the spirit of partnership and mutual help.”
Peskov also said that Putin “assumes that when US makers of medical equipment and materials have gained speed, they too will be able to reciprocate if necessary”.
Russia has already sent planeloads of masks and other medical aid to Italy, deploying medics in military vehicles labelled: “From Russia with Love.” Russia’s military said the aid included 22 vehicles and mobile disinfection labs. Italian officials publicly thanked Russia for the aid. A widely circulated report in the La Stampa newspaper cited senior officials calling the aid 80% “useless”.
“Hopefully someone will tell Trump that he’s playing right into a propaganda ploy,” wrote Andrew Weiss of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on Twitter.
