SANA’A, November 6. /TASS/. Russian Emergencies Ministry’s plane with 50 Russians and CIS nationals onboard has left Yemen’s capital Sana’a, the ministry’s deputy director of international activities department Alexander Tomashov told TASS on Friday.
"A Russian Emergencies Ministry’s plane will fly 50 Russian and CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States] citizens from Yemen’s capital Sana’a to Moscow," Tomashov said.
A TASS correspondent reported that Russian Emergencies Ministry’s Il-76 plane has left Sana’a at 1:20pm Moscow time. The plane will stop at the Egyptian city of Aswan for refueling and then head for Moscow.
The plane was initially scheduled to leave at around 3pm Moscow time on Thursday, but was delayed for technical reasons connected with malfunctions in dispatch communication channels, Russia’s Charge d’Affaires in Yemen Andrey Chernovol said.
The plane is expected to arrive to Moscow’s Domodedovo airport. It earlier delivered 20 tons of humanitarian aid to Yemen, as well as 20-and 30-seat tents that local authorities use for refugee camps.
The humanitarian aid to Yemen is being provided on the orders from the Russian government and Foreign Ministry. This is the third Emergencies Ministry’s flight to Yemen over the last months.
