Kremlin on Thursday said that Russia would accept a “kind offer” from U.S. President Donald Trump to ship ventilators to the country if needed.

The country had earlier shipped ventilators and protective gear this month to the U.S. after a phone conversation between Trump and President Vladimir Putin.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told newsmen on a conference call that Trump told Putin in a recent phone call that the U.S. could reciprocate as it begins to produce more ventilators.

“If necessary Russia would, of course, take advantage of this kind offer,” Peskov said.

He, however, did not mention whether Moscow would pay for the potential ventilator shipments from the U.S. or whether Russia needed them.

The Kremlin initially described Russia’s shipment of ventilators and medical equipment to the U.S. as humanitarian aid.

Russia, at the moment, has recorded 27,938 cases and 232 coronavirus-related deaths
