ROSTOV-ON-DON, November 30. /TASS/. Another stage of humanitarian aid to eastern Ukraine is over, Oleg Voronov, a deputy chief of the Russian emergencies ministry’s national crisis management centre, told TASS on Sunday.
“All the trucks of the Russian emergencies ministry’s humanitarian convoy that delivered aid to Donetsk and Lugansk have returned to the Rostov region empty.
