Due to the worsening epidemic situation in a number of regions of the North-West of Russia, the Western Military District is providing assistance in providing liquid oxygen to patients in need of civilian hospitals.

Due to the production capabilities of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District, about 4 tons of liquid oxygen were transferred to hospitals in the Tver and Voronezh regions.

Assistance to the regions is provided at the direction of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation after appeals from a number of heads of regions.

Military airfields are equipped with automobile oxygen-producing stations designed to obtain medical-grade liquid and gaseous oxygen from atmospheric air in the field.

This oxygen is used in on-board systems of aviation complexes in the oxygen system of an aircraft, designed to ensure the normal life of the crew, including during high-altitude flights and ejection.

The provision of oxygen to medical organizations of civil health care is carried out without prejudice to the combat readiness of aviation formations and military units of the Western Military District.
