“In accordance with the instructions received from the president and the government of Russia, the Emergencies Ministry has carried out a humanitarian operation to provide assistance to the population of Tajikistan. To this end, Il-76 planes of the Russian Emergencies Ministry made flights on April 3, 4 and 5 to deliver relief supplies to Dushanbe,” the ministry said.
