DONETSK / MATVEYEV KURGAN /Rostov region/, November 16. /TASS/. Russia’s humanitarian convoy with aid for Donbass crossed the border with Ukraine, the Emergency Situations Ministry’s representative Oleg Voronov said on Sunday.

The convoy’s 54 trucks head for Donetsk and 20 - for Lugansk.
“Over 350 tonnes of humanitarian aid will be delivered to Donetsk, and over 100 tonnes to Lugansk,” the representative said.
