MOSCOW, July 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Emergency Ministry delivered about 115 Ukrainian refugees from Rostov-on-Don, southern Russia, to Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on Wednesday evening.

“Buses will take them to temporary refugee centers in the Ryazan region,” Alexander Drobyshevsky, an official spokesperson for the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, told ITAR-TASS.

He said that another Emergencies Ministry plane would fly from Rostov-on-Don, southern Russia, to Simferopol to pick up more than a hundred Ukrainian nationals. They will be delivered to the town of Ivanovo, located 245 kilometers away from Moscow.
