MOSCOW, January 27. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry plans to complete the formation of the 12th convoy with humanitarian aid for Donbas citizens by January 31, the ministry’s press service said on Tuesday.
The convoy will consist of more than 170 trucks that will deliver over 1,500 tons of cargo. “There are foodstuffs, medicines, essentials, building materials and other life necessities,” the ministry said.
The aid convoy will be formed in southern Russia’s Rostov region in the ministry’s Donskoy rescue center. Earlier on Tuesday, a humanitarian aid convoy departed from the Moscow Region’s Noginsk rescue center.
“The trucks from Noginsk will be joined by vehicles from other Russian regions and the formation of the 12th convoy is to be completed by January 31,” the spokesman said.
Since mid-August 2014, 11 Russian humanitarian aid convoys have delivered more than 14,800 tons of relief supplies, mainly foodstuffs, medicines, building materials and primary necessity items to people in eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
