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.
"Currently, the trucks are heading towards the Russian border," he said.
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.
More than 90 trucks delivered more than 900 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Donetsk and about the same amount of humanitarian cargoes were delivered to Luhanks by more than 80 trucks.
This time, 75% of cargoes were foodstuffs. Apart from that, the humanitarian aid included medicines, building materials and items of daily necessity, as well as textbooks and study aids.
