MOSCOW, January 4 /TASS/. The Russian Emergencies Ministry will dispatch a truck convoy with relief cargo for the Donetsk and Lugansk regions to Russia’s southern Rostov region on Sunday, the Ministry’s source told TASS.
“The convoy comprising 60 trucks will leave the Emergencies Ministry rescue center in Noginsk. These trucks will be used to form part of the 11th convoy that will take relief aid to Donbas from the Rostov region,” source went on to say. Trucks loaded with relief cargoes are also streaming into the Rostov region from other parts of Russia.
Viktor Yatsutsenko, the head of the National Crisis Management center, said that the 11th relief convoy would consist of more than 120 trucks that would deliver more than 1,400 tonnes of relief aid, including food and baby food.
The truck convoy is expected to arrive in Donbas on January 8.
Russia has sent ten relief convoys to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions since August. They have delivered more than 13,000 of relief cargo, mainly food, medical supplies and building materials to the conflict-stricken Donbas population. The tenth relief convoy brought New Year presents to the Donbas children late last year.
