MOSCOW, March 14. /TASS/. A Russian Emergencies Ministry convoy that delivered urgent humanitarian aid to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in east Ukraine has returned to the Russian Federation, the ministry’s National Crisis Situations Management Center’s deputy head Oleg Voronov said.
Voronov said the return meant that an emergency stage of the relief action for Donbass has been completed.
"It was successful. There were no failures in the carrying out of this humanitarian mission. All cargoes were delivered to addressees, unloaded at depots. All trucks have returned to the Rostov Region empty after passing border and customs control," he said.
On Friday, more than 50 trucks delivered to the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk more than 250 metric tons of humanitarian aid for organization of spring agricultural work, ensuring life support of the population and restoration of socially significant facilities. The cargoes included foodstuffs, construction materials and materials for seedtime.
The ministry explained the dispatch of the extraordinary convoy by the complicated situation in Donbass over spring agricultural work, huge destruction in inhabited localities where there is an acute shortage of construction materials for restoration of housing and socially significant facilities.
Another extraordinary convoy will head for Donbass March 15.
