The gifts, including 5kg of rice, one box of milk, one box of instant noodles each, were part of the "Zero dong" stall model launched by the provincial military command to assist those facing difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The recipients are Russian people who could not return to their homeland and lost their jobs due to the pandemic and have lived on aid from the local community for months.
Ms. Borisova Tatiana, a recipient, said thanks to the Vietnamese troops for their timely and significant support. She highlighted the gift as a manifestation of the close friendship between the two countries.
Reportedly, more than 700 Russian people are living in Nha Trang city.
