MOSCOW, October 1. /TASS/. Russia’s yet-to-be dispatched fourth humanitarian aid convoy to eastern Ukraine will deliver building materials for repairing the ruined infrastructure. The date when the convoy may take to the road has not been determined yet, though, Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Artamonov told TASS.

“The dates have not been set yet. It is a matter of inter-state cooperation,” Artamonov said, adding that the convoy was practically ready to leave. “While the previous three delivered mostly everyday essentials for the population in Ukraine’s south-east, the fourth may bring building materials and everything necessary for infrastructure repairs.”

Artamonov said preparations for the winter season were well underway.

“Many infrastructures and supply lines were ruined and they have to be repaired fast to bring water and electricity to people’s homes to give them a calm life. Besides, children must go to school. Other social infrastructures must be put in order step by step,” Artamonov said.

So far Russia has dispatched three humanitarian convoy to Ukraine’s east. The first consignment of cargoes totalling 2,000 tonnes was delivered to Luhansk on August 22. Another two totalling 4,000 tonnes arrived in Ukraine on September 13 and 21. They delivered foods, power generators, medicines, warm clothes and drinking water.
