BISHKEK, August 29 (Itar-Tass) - An airplane Antonov-124 from Russia has brought the first batch of technical humanitarian aid in the capital of Kyrgyzstan on Thursday. “The first batch of free aid, including five advanced armoured BMW cars, ten minibuses Ford Transit and a VIP helicopter Mil Mi-8, was delivered today,” Russian Ambassador in Kyrgyzstan Andrei Krutko said at a ceremony to hand over the technical humanitarian aid. “This is our contribution in an upcoming summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Bishkek,” the ambassador said.
In his words, this aid was provided to Kyrgyzstan timely, because such large-scale events “require major efforts and the provision of the guests with cars.” “It is difficult to name the exact sum the aid is estimated at, it is within the range of 12-15 million dollars,” the ambassador said. “This was a request from Kyrgyzstan and it was fulfilled completely,” he said.
The second batch of technical aid is expected to be brought to Bishkek overnight to Friday.
A SCO summit is scheduled in Bishkek on September 13.
