DONETSK, Rostov Region, September 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The last truck from Russia’s second aid convoy to the east Ukrainian city of Luhansk returned to Russia at 18:30 Moscow time on Saturday, an ITAR-TASS correspondent reported from the scene.
“All vehicles had reached the Ukrainian-Russian border without incidents and the last of them crossed the border at 18:30,” a source said.
Early on Saturday, a convoy of 245 trucks crossed the border and headed to Lugansk to deliver more than 2,000 tonnes of relief supplies to the residents of the war-torn city, including food, power generators, medicines, and blankets.
After unloading, the trucks returned to Russia’s Rostov region in groups of 35 vehicles.
The residents of Luhansk welcomed the aid convoy, lining up the sides of the roads, waving hands and Russian flags, many women crying.
