The Israeli government airlifted humanitarian aid to Ukraine for its flood-hit western regions.
Antibiotics, bandages and other materials required for medical care were sent to the Ukrainian Emergency Ministry, said Shahar Arieli, a leader of the Israeli Mission to Ukraine, at a news conference Friday.
According to Ukraineâ€™s Emergency Ministry, storms and floods last month in six western regions of Ukraine killed at least 32 people.
Hundreds of towns and villages were flooded, 40,000 houses were damaged and thousands of residents were evacuated, officials said. The Ukrainian government called the flooding the worst the country has seen in years.
