KAMENSK-SHAKHTINSKY (Rostov Region), August 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Kamaz trucks from Russia’s humanitarian aid convoy for residents of Ukraine’s embattled southeast will be examined by a special device, a spokesman for the transport company carrying the cargo said Sunday.
“The trucks will be tested by a special scanning device on Russian territory,” the spokesman told Itar-Tass.
The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry sent a 262-truck convoy with relief supplies for residents of the war-torn southeast of Ukraine on August 12. The cargo contains some 2,000 metric tons of humanitarian aid, including food (grain, sugar, baby food), medications, sleeping bags and portable power generators.
The first 16 white Kamazes have already arrived at the Donetsk border-crossing point in Russia. The trucks are at a local motor depot.
Troops loyal to Kiev and local militias in the southeastern Ukrainian Donetsk and Lugansk regions are involved in fierce clashes as the Ukrainian armed forces are conducting a military operation to regain control over the breakaway regions, which on May 11 proclaimed their independence at local referendums.
During the military operation, conducted since mid-April, Kiev has used armored vehicles, heavy artillery and attack aviation. Hundreds of civilians have been killed in it. Many buildings have been destroyed and tens of thousands of people have had to flee Ukraine’s southeast.
