VOLGOGRAD, July 06, 5:21 /ITAR-TASS/. Two Il-76 planes of the Russian Emergencies Ministry brought 76 tonnes of relief cargo meant for Ukrainian refugees to Volgograd this night. The planes landed at Volgograd’s international airport, Vyacheslav Goncharov, a spokesperson for the regional department of the Russian Emergencies Ministry told Itar-Tass.

The relief cargo consists of tents, beds, medical supplies and food - canned food, tea, sugar, etc.

"The relief aid will be delivered to temporary refugee centers set up for Ukrainian nationals who were forced to flee their homeland because of war,” Goncharov said.

More than 5,000 people who have left Ukraine because of war are staying in the Volgograd region. That prompted Acting Governor Andrei Bocharov to declare the state of emergency in the region on July 1.

More than 30 Russian regions, primarily the Southern, North Caucasian and the Central Federal Districts as well as Crimea, have received Ukrainian refugees.
