Japan has donated medical equipment worth UAH 22.5 million to the State Border Service's Central Clinical Hospital.

The presidential press service announced this in a statement, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The ceremonial handover of the equipment was attended by President Petro Poroshenko, Japan's Ambassador to Ukraine Shigeki Sumi, Deputy Executive Director of the United Nations Office for Project Services Vitaliy Vanshelboim, and the State Border Service's Chairman Viktor Nazarenko.

"The donated equipment includes a Toshiba CT scanner made in 2016, an Olympus video endoscope system, and a Calypso digital X-ray system. The donor is the government of Japan with the facilitation of the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). The total budget was UAH 22.502 million," the statement said.

Vasyl Petrenko, the head of the hospital's diagnostic department, said that the new equipment would enable it to make accurate diagnosis and provide quality medical care, primarily to military personnel wounded in the zone of the government's antiterrorist operation (ATO), veterans of the ATO, border guards, and their families.

According to him, all the medical services to them will be provided free of charge.
