“Over 100 vehicles are due to cross the border on Sunday. They are to deliver 1,000 tons of cargo,” Vladimir Stepanov said.
The convoy will consist of building materials needed for the destroyed houses: glass, slate, roofing material and also fuel.
Stepanov said one half of vehicles will go to Lugansk while the other one to Donetsk. “We know exactly where this aid will go,” Stepanov said.
The official stressed that the ministry plans to provide humanitarian aid to Ukraine’s eastern regions in the future. “Still, this work will continue, it will go on,” he said.
Since mid-August through mid-November, seven Russian convoys delivered more than 8,000 tons of humanitarian aid to Donetsk and Luhansk. The cargo consisted of food, bottled water, bed linen, electric stations, water filtering stations, medicines and fuel.
