BELGRADE, November 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s humanitarian aid will be delivered to Kosovo’s Serbs within the next four to five days, Petr Frolov, a counselor of the Russian embassy in Belgrade told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The aid was handed over to the Serbian side in the town of Nish on Thursday,” he said. “It will be delivered to Kosovo in four to five days to be distributed to local Red Cross offices.”
According to earlier reports, a Russian emergencies ministry’s Ilyushin-76 plane brought the humanitarian aid of heaters, canned foods, and sugar to an overall weight of 36 tons.
This year, Russia has already rendered aid to Serbia. Thus, in late August, the emergencies ministry sent a Be-200 amphibian plane and a Mi-26 helicopter to extinguish wildfires in this country. In October, a Russian-Serbian Centre for Emergencies in the Balkans was opened in Nish.
