MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. Over 60,000 tons of humanitarian aid has been delivered by Russian Emergencies Ministry and public organizations to Ukraine’s south-east since August 2014, Emergencies Deputy Minister Sergey Voronov told a session at the Federation Council on Thursday.
"Russian Emergencies Ministry delivered over 60 tons of cargo by 50 convoys. The 50th convoy is currently being unloaded on the territory of the [self-proclaimed Donbass] republics. Over 44,000 tons of food has been delivered, as well as thousands of tons of construction materials for ensuring energy security, combustibles and lubricants, along with medicaments, educational literature and other material resources," Voronov said.
The procedure of customs registration was simplified which allowed different public organizations to shortly register and deliver humanitarian cargoes to Donbass. "Public organization delivered over 31,000 tons of humanitarian cargoes in 2015, including over 750 tons since the start of 2016," the deputy minister noted.
