“Politics” instead of “saving people”. The United States destroyed ventilators donated by Russia and lied about their defect.
A spokesman for the US Federal Emergency Management Agency said that Americans had destroyed the ventilators donated by Russia. Moreover, in the presentation of BuzzFeed News, the devices were defective, but in fact, it turned out that the Americans simply did not figure out how to use the adapters. And they decided to lie. As always, for the sake of politics.
Disinformation linked to the decision of US health to stop using medical equipment donated by Russian Federation.
Forty-five ventilators were sent from Russia to the USA in April 2020. They included several of a particular model called Aventa-M, built by the Ural Instrument Engineering Plant (UPZ) in Chelyabinsk, 930 miles east of Moscow. Shortly after being delivered to the US, this model of ventilators was reported by Russian media to have caused two deadly fires at hospitals treating coronavirus patients. That is why in May 2020, the Federal Emergency Management Agency spokesperson said that they are aware of the fires and that the US is returning the ventilators “out of an abundance of caution.”
