The country has been sending aid around the world to help healthcare workers.

A UAE aid plane carrying 11 tons of medical supplies was dispatched to Ukraine to assist the country in combating the Covid-19 pandemic, benefitting over 10,000 healthcare professionals.

This initiative is part of the UAE's commitment to cooperating with countries working to combat the Covid-19 outbreak in order to strengthen global efforts to curb the virus' spread.

"This provision of aid by the UAE comes as a gesture of solidarity with countries seeking to bolster their fight against the novel coronavirus. The UAE stands with the leadership and people of Ukraine during this challenging moment that the international community must face as a united front," said Salem Ahmed Al Kaabi, UAE Ambassador to Ukraine.

He added that UAE assistance to Ukraine would enable medical staff to safely perform their professional duties in combating the virus' spread.

Furthermore, he noted that the aid plane repatriated 113 Ukrainian citizens from the UAE as a result of coordination between Emirati and Ukrainian authorities to ensure their safe return.
