NOGINSK, near Moscow, November 8. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry will prepare another batch of humanitarian aid to embattled Donbass in the coming days, the ministry’s leading military expert said on Saturday.
“The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations plans to collect a new batch of humanitarian aid in the near future,” Eduard Chizhikov said without specifying concrete dates.
On Saturday the Noginsk rescue centre organised a gala ceremony greeting the motor convoy that delivered well over 2,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to the cities of Donetsk and Luhansk at the last weekend.
“The cargo included foodstuffs, medications and building products which could help people feel more comfortable in cold weather,” he said.
Chief of the motor convoy Aleksandr Lekomtsev said that there were no problems with crossing the border into the Donetsk region and “people welcomed us with open arms along the whole route.”
On November 2 the sixth humanitarian convoy reached Luhansk and Donetsk with over 1,000 tonnes of foodstuffs, fuel, building products and medications following the previous five convoys that delivered a total of 6,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Donbass - a largely industrialised region of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions in Ukraine’s east that became a battleground between pro-Kiev forces and militias of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.
