The United States and Russia have provided humanitarian assistance to each other during crises in the past and will no doubt continue to do so in the future, US Department of State spokeswoman Morgan Ortegus said.

Earlier, Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyanskiy said that the country could send more medical supplies to the US.

On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart, Donald Trump, had a phone conversation about the coronavirus and measures taken to slow its spread.

Earlier, Johns Hopkins University said that the number of victims of coronavirus in the United States exceeded 5,100 with more than 215,000 infected.

On Wednesday, a An-124 (Ruslan) plane arrived in New York with medical equipment from Russia. On board, as noted by Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov, were disinfectants, glasses, respirators and masks, as well as other equipment.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
