MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. Trucks with Russian humanitarian aid to Donbass have been unloaded in the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk and set off back to Russua, Oleg Voronov, a spokesman for the National Crisis Management Centre of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, told TASS on Sunday.

More than 500 volunteers took part in unloading of the humanitarian aid in Donetsk and Luhansk. "Thanks to their efforts, the trucks were emptied quickly and set off for the return journey before dark," Voronov said.
