US House Dems criticize Trump for sending ventilators to Russia

Democrats from the United States House of Representatives requested on Friday that the US President Donald Trump provides the reasoning behind the decision to send ventilators to Russia, as part of the $5.6 billion aid package.

"We are deeply concerned with recent reports that you are providing critical, life-saving ventilators to Russia when they are urgently needed here in the United States to combat the coronavirus crisis and save American lives," it was said in a letter signed by top House Committee Chairs.

Earlier in the week, US State Department said it was delivering 200 ventilators to Russia, in line with the agreement between US president and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
