The Russian Emergencies Ministry is preparing an eighth humanitarian convoy for eastern Ukraine, he said earlier. "We expect the convoy to depart on November 26-27."
Fuel, mainly gasoline and diesel fuel, will account for about 40% of the cargo, he said.
The Russian Energy Ministry is participating in the preparations.
During the period from August 23 to November 16, seven convoys of the Russian Emergencies Ministry delivered more than 8,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid cargoes to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. They delivered food products, water, bed linen, electric stations, water filtering stations, medicines and fuel.
