MOSCOW, February 11. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has started preparing the next humanitarian aid convoy for the war-torn eastern Ukraine, the ministry’s press service said on Wednesday.
"The Emergencies Ministry currently continues delivering humanitarian cargos to the Rostov Region where the next convoy of vehicles is being formed for the citizens of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions," a ministry spokesperson said.
Later on Wednesday, the ministry’s aircraft will deliver a humanitarian cargo of more than 70 tons from the Ramenskoye airfield near Moscow to Rostov-on-Don, in southern Russia.
The cargo mainly consists of medicines and medical appliances, which will be then loaded on the vehicles in Rostov-on-Don that are to become part of the convoy.
Since mid-August 2014, Russian convoys have delivered to Donbas more than 18,000 tons of humanitarian aid, mainly foodstuffs, medicines, building materials and primary necessity items.
