MOSCOW, July 21. /TASS/. Russia’s new convoy with humanitarian aid for Ukraine’s Donetsk region is traveling towards the state border with Ukraine, a source from the press service of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has told Tass.
"A convoy of more than 50 vehicles with humanitarian aid left the Don Rescue Centre of the Emergencies Ministry in the settlement of Kovalyovka in the [Ukraine-bordering] Rostov region, heading to the Russian-Ukrainian border," he said.
‘It is carrying more than 400 tons of humanitarian aid for residents of the Donetsk region - foodstuffs, medicines and educational materials," the ministry’s source said.
The convoy will cross the border at the Matveyev Kurgan border check point after going through customs clearance and border procedures, and will travel towards Donetsk.
This is the 54th humanitarian convoy since August 2014. More than 62,000 tons of humanitarian aid has been delivered to Ukraine’s eastern Lugansk and Donetsk regions in about two years, helping the region to avoid a humanitarian disaster.
