MOSCOW, November 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian emergencies ministry has sent an airplane to Cuba to deliver humanitarian aid after a devastating storm Sandy, a ministry spokesman told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“An Ilyushin-76 plane took off from the Ramenskoye airfield outside Moscow at 23:45 Moscow time on Wednesday,” the spokesman said. The jet has a cargo of building materials weighing 32 tons to restore housing ruined by the storm. The aid is delivered at the request of the Cuban side.
