The donation consists of over five million pieces of protective equipment, sent to the Italian Civil Defense, to be distributed to the most needed points.
President of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić, Minister for European Integration Jadranka Joksimović and Ambassador of Italy to Serbia Carlo Lo Cascio attended today the shipment of medical equipment donated by Serbia to Italy to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Medical equipment was shipped today from Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport at 1 pm in four Air Serbia planes.
“In Italy, the situation is slowly improving, but we still have to fight to win the battle against the coronavirus. We need every kind of help. Therefore, the valuable material donated today will be able to contribute to saving lives. Thanks to Serbia for this gesture – which is symbolically happening on a date important for Italy, on the day of the Liberation of Italy,” said Ambassador of Italy H.E. Carlo Lo Cascio.
