MOSCOW, January /TASS/. A Russian Emergencies Ministry truck convoy with relief aid for the Donetsk and Luhansk regions left for the Rostov region on Sunday, the Ministry’s source told TASS.
The convoy comprising more than 60 trucks left the Emergencies Ministry rescue center in Noginsk at 06:00 Moscow time. The drivers have delivered the relief cargo to Donbas several times.
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 Luhansk 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.
