MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Russia plans to send yet another, 49th, humanitarian convoy to Donbass on February 18, Russian Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Artamonov told TASS on Tuesday.
"Yet another humanitarian convoy to Donbass will be dispatched on February 18. Its formation will start on February 10," he said.
First Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Stepanov said earlier the ministry would send more rescue and firefighting equipment and vehicles to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in 2016.
Since August 2014, Russia’s emergencies ministry has delivered more than 58,000 tons of humanitarian cargoes to Donbass. Such practices are supported by most of Russians. Thus, according to the All-Russia Public Opinion Center (VCIOM), as many as 73% of Russians speak in favor of further humanitarian assistance to Donbass residents. A total of 70% of respondents say it is in the interests of Russian citizens as well.
