Taking in consideration the recommendations of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, the mashines will be supplied to Ukraine’s regions that may have the greatest demand, specifically: Chernivtsi, Donetsk, Luhansk, Lviv, Odesa, Volyn and Zakarpattia oblasts will receive one AVL machine each, and three more machines will be handed to Kyiv’s hospitals.
