Due to the difficult epidemic situation in a number of regions of North-West Russia, aviation units of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District continue to provide assistance in providing patients with liquid oxygen to civilian hospitals.

Specialists of aviation formations and military units daily produce about 3 tons of liquefied oxygen. Thus, a stock with a total volume of more than 10 tons has been created for transfer to civil hospitals and other medical institutions.

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.

The airfields of the association are equipped with oxygen-producing stations DKDS-70 and TKDS-100, designed to obtain liquid and gaseous oxygen of medical quality in the field. Oxygen is used in the aircraft onboard systems designed to ensure the normal life of the crew, including during high-altitude flights and ejection.

The Western Military District has already transferred about 60 tons of oxygen to regional and regional hospitals. 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.
