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.

“After all the border and customs formalities, the convoy crossed the state border,” he said.

“Over 350 tonnes of humanitarian aid will be delivered to Donetsk, and over 100 tonnes to Lugansk,” the representative said.
