  • Moscow's Red Square was virtually empty as the lockdown in the city came into force Monday

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his USA counterpart Donald Trump agreed during a phone call on Monday that the current situation on world oil markets suited neither, the Kremlin said on Tuesday.

A Russian military transport plane took off from an airfield outside Moscow on Wednesday and headed for the United States with a load of medical equipment and masks to help Washington fight the coronavirus pandemic. Its cargo hold was filled with cardboard boxes and other packages. According to the latest World Health Organization data, more than 750,000 cases of Covid-19 have been registered worldwide and over 36,000 people have died.

Russian Federation has so far registered 2,777 cases of the coronavirus and 24 deaths, mostly in Moscow. During the day, 55 people were discharged after recovery. Some doctors have questioned the accuracy of the figure given.

"We are taking all precautionary measures", he said, adding that Putin was at the presidential residence in Novo-Ogaryovo outside Moscow.

"Being aware of the serious epidemiological situation in America, the Russian side offered medical equipment and protective gear as assistance", the post quoted Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying.

Trump and Putin agreed during their call to have their top energy officials discuss slumping global oil markets, the Kremlin said on Monday, as Trump called Russia's price war with Saudi Arabia "crazy".

In an apparent error, Trump on Monday said that the aid had already arrived from Russia, telling reporters in the White House Rose Garden: "Russia sent us a very, very large planeload of things, medical equipment, which was very nice".

In his meeting with the tough-talking president, Dr Protsenko said Russian Federation should brace for the spread of the disease as he likened the situation to the one in Italy where over 105,000 cases have been reported with at least 12,000 deaths. The Russians did not specify the contents of the shipments but Italian media reported that local authorities found a lot of them to be "useless".

Last month, Russian Federation said it sent almost 1,000 coronavirus testing kits to former Soviet states and countries including Iran and North Korea.

Protsenko, who has been the face of Moscow's battle with coronavirus for many Russians, warned Putin that Russia should brace for the illness spreading like it has in Italy. In Moscow, residents are observing a strict home-isolation regime.
