“This morning, around 60 trucks left Noginsk, in Moscow Region, for Rostov Region. They carry glass, roofing materials, as well as sugar, canned goods for the Donbass citizens,” said Oleg Voronov, a deputy head of the ministry’s National Crisis Management Center.
Over the past several days the trucks loaded with cargo have been heading to Rostov Region where a joint convoy is to be formed to deliver humanitarian aid to the affected areas of Donbass, Voronov said.
Russian Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Stepanov told journalists earlier this week that the eighth convoy is expected to deliver 1,000 tons of cargo on November 30.
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.
