ROSTOV-ON-DON, November 3. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry is preparing a regular humanitarian convoy in the Rostov Region for the eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Lugansk, deputy head of the National Centre for Crisis Management Oleg Voronov said on Monday.
“At present, the National Centre for Crisis Management is organising the work for concentrating humanitarian cargoes. The aid is being loaded to trucks,” he said.
Humanitarian aid is being formed at the request of the Donetsk and Lugansk authorities, Voronov said.
“It (aid) consists of medicines and fuel that are now being loaded to trucks of the Noginsk Rescue Centre. Over the past week drivers of this centre have delivered over 2,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Donetsk and Lugansk,” he said.
This is the sixth humanitarian convoy for residents of the self-proclaimed people’s republics. On November 2, over 100 trucks delivered over 1,000 tonnes of foodstuffs, fuel, construction materials and medicines to the regions.
Earlier, on October 31, about 100 trucks delivered about 1,000 tonnes of similar cargoes to Donetsk and Lugansk. Before at least 6,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid were dispatched to Donbass.
