MOSCOW, November 1. /TASS/. Russia’s Ministry for Emergency Situations has started loading up another humanitarian aid convoy for Donbass residents, deputy head of the ministry’s National Crisis Management Centre Oleg Voronov told Tass on Saturday.
“Now a humanitarian convoy is loading and getting ready to set off,” Voronov said.
Donetsk and Lugansk will be provided with sugar, canned meat, building products, fuel and medications.
On October 31 the fourth auto convoy of the Russian Emergencies Ministry delivered about 1,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid - foodstuffs and building products.
Earlier, Minister Vladimir Stepanov said that nearly 3,000 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes are planned to be delivered there in a span of seven days.
In late September the third humanitarian aid convoy returned to Russia after at least 200 KAMAZ trucks had delivered 2,000 tonnes of foodstuffs /including cereal and canned products/, electric generating units, medications, warm clothing and bottled drinking water to embattled Donbass - a largely industrialised region of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions in Ukraine’s east.
The first two convoys with Russian humanitarian aid for Ukraine’s southeast brought a total of 4,000 tonnes of cargo to the city of Lugansk.
