MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations will send more than one thousand tonnes of relief supplies to Donetsk andLuhansk regions in southeast Ukraine, deputy chief of the Emergencies Ministry’s national centre for management in emergency situations Oleg Voronov told TASS by phone.
“More than 100 trucks will deliver more than 1,000 tonnes of cargoes, including sugar and canned meat, building materials, fuel and medicines to Donetsk and Luhansk regions,” he noted.
The relief convoy is formed and loaded fully, Voronov said. “Delivery is expected soon,” the senior emergencies official said.
Driver-rescuers will drive these trucks who had brought around one thousand tonnes of relief supplies to the cities of Donetsk and Luhansk on October 31. “All of them are ready to go on the route and are feeling well,” Voronov noted.
On October 31, the Russian humanitarian convoy has delivered one thousand tonnes of relief aid, including foodstuffs and building materials to Donetsk and Luhansk. The Emergencies Ministry plans to supply up to 3,000 tonnes of relief aid within a week, Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Stepanov said earlier.
First three convoys have brought to Donetsk and Luhansk a total 6,000 tonnes of cargoes, including foodstuffs, particularly cereals and canned food, medicines, power generators, warm clothes and bottled drinking water.
