DONETSK (Rostov region), November 4. /TASS/. All trucks with relief supplies for troubled south-eastern Ukrainian cities of Luhansk and Donetsk have crossed Russian-Ukrainian border, deputy chief of Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations national centre of management in emergency situations Oleg Voronov told TASS.
“A relief aid convoy of 20 trucks was divided in two parts and after passing customs clearance 10 trucks went to Donetsk and the same number of trucks to Lugansk,” he said.
At the request from regional authorities aid convoys are delivering 100 tonnes of medicines and fuel which the cities of Donetsk and Luhansk badly need now.
This is already the sixth relief aid convoy for residents of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. More than 100 trucks have delivered more than 1,000 tonnes of foodstuffs, fuel, building materials and medicines to the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk on November 2. Around 100 trucks have supplied around 1,000 tonnes of similar cargoes to Donetsk and Lugansk on October 31.
“The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations is sending humanitarian help on a request from the leadership of Donetsk and Luhansk. Today we will be carrying out targeted deliveries of medicine to healthcare institutions and fuel to life sustaining services in the region, including fire departments and emergency services, ambulances and housing authorities," Oleg Voronov, deputy chief of the ministry’s national crisis management centre, told TASS.
The 20-truck convoy will carry a 100-tonnes load of humanitarian cargo, which includes medicine and fuel.
Earlier, on October 31, another Russian humanitarian convoy of 100 trucks delivered about 1,000 humanitarian cargoes to Donetsk and Lugansk.
Before that, Russia’s three humanitarian convoys delivered about 6,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to eastern Ukraine.
