MOSCOW, December 11. /TASS/. Russian emergencies ministry’s truck with relief aid to eastern Ukraine have reached Russia’s southern Rostov region, a spokesman for the ministry told TASS early on Thursday.
About 40 trucks with humanitarian cargos set off from the town of Noginsk outside Moscow early on December 9.
“In the evening of December 9, they reached the Rostov region where a humanitarian convoy to Donbass will be arranged,” the spokesman said, adding that trucks with humanitarian cargos had also been sent from Asktrakhan, Tver, Taganrog, Krasnodar, Voronezh, and other Russian regions.
Earlier, Russian Emergencies Ministry Spokesman Alexander Drobyshevsky said that the next humanitarian convoy would be made up of more than 120 trucks that were to deliver more than 1,200 tonnes of humanitarian cargos - foodstuffs and everyday essentials.
It will be ninth Russian humanitarian convoy to eastern Ukraine. Since August 11, 2014, the previous eight convoys delivered more than 10,700 tonnes of relief aid to east Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Luhansk.
