Servicemen of the Engels long-range aviation unit, stationed in the Kaluga, Murmansk and Saratov regions, produce oxygen in order to provide assistance to needy civilian hospitals.

Assistance to the regions is provided at the direction of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation after appeals from the heads of the regions with a request for assistance.

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 the Engels aviation formation.
