Valuable cargo arrival
On April 10, the An-124 ”Ruslan” cargo plane arrived from China to Kazan Airport with a large consignment of protective masks,
as well as equipment (production line) for arranging their production at the enterprises of the Republic of Tatarstan in order to
prevent the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus infection in the territory of the Russian Federation.
The special flight delivered from China more than 6 million masks and respirators, as well as 6 lines for their production with
an aggregate capacity of 15 million masks per month, said Minister of Industry and Trade of the Republic of Tatarstan Albert Karimov.
“These products and equipment were purchased by enterprises of Tatarstan,” Karimov specified. According to the Minister, after
passing through customs procedures, the equipment will be delivered to production sites in Kazan, Nizhnekamsk and Aznakaevo.
As a matter of priority Tatarstan plans to provide masks of its own production to medical facilities and enterprises, which now
continue to work in the Republic of Tatarstan.
In addition, the aircraft delivered isolation wards for transporting patients with coronavirus.
