LUHANSK/DONETSK November 2. /TASS/. A truck convoy returns to Russia’s Ukraine-bordering Rostov region after more than 100 trucks delivered humanitarian cargo to war-torn Donetsk and Luhansk regions earlier on Sunday.
The convoy arriving in Luhansk is already on its way towards the Russian border, the deputy head of the National Crisis Management Center of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations, Oleg Voronov, has told TASS. Work to unload trucks ends in Donetsk, after which the trucks will also head for the border.
The embattled regions have received more than 1,000 tons of humanitarian aid, including foodstuffs, construction materials, fuel and medicines.
On October 31, another truck convoy delivered about 1,000 tons of relief aid for Donbass (the Donetsk and Luhansk regions), shared equally between the two war-torn regions.
The Sunday’s convoy is a fifth Russian humanitarian convoy for Ukraine’s southeast. The first three brought to Donetsk and Luhansk a total of 6,000 tons of foods, including cereals and canned foods, and also medical supplies, electricity generators, warm clothing, and bottled drinking water.
