MOSCOW, April 30 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has sent to Crimea, a former Ukrainian region that recently became part of Russia, a regular batch of humanitarian assistance, ministry spokesman Alexander Drobyshevsky said Wednesday.
“At 15:30 Moscow Time [11:30 GMT], an Il-76 aircraft loaded with humanitarian aid departed from the Ramenskoye airfield in the Moscow Region for Simferopol,” Drobyshevsky told Itar-Tass, adding that food and medical supplies, whose total weight is about 10 tons are on board the plane.
“Since mid-March, various types of transport have brought to Crimea humanitarian cargoes with the total weight of over 2,000 tons,” he added.
The Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, a city with a special status on the Crimean Peninsula, where most residents are Russians, signed agreements to reunify with Russia on March 18 after a referendum two days earlier in which an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voted to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation.
The developments came after a coup in Ukraine in February, when new people were brought to power in Ukraine amid deadly riots as President Viktor Yanukovich had to leave Ukraine citing security concerns the same month.
