MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. Russia’s emergencies ministry has sent yet another, the 27th, humanitarian convoy to eastern Ukraine, a spokesman for the national crisis management centre told TASS on Thursday.
"At 04:00 a.m. Moscow time, more than 100 trucks set off from the Don rescue centre [in the southern Rostov region]. Now they are heading to the Russian-Ukrainian border," the spokesman said. The trucks are to deliver more than 1,000 tons of humanitarian cargoes, including canned meat, fish and milk, flour and articles of daily necessity, to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions," a ministry spokesman said.
Before the border, the convoy will break in two. About 50 trucks will go to the Donetsk region, and about the same number of trucks will go to the Luhansk region after all necessaru border crossing procedures.
Since August 2014, Russia’s emergencies ministry has delivered more than 34,000 tons of humanitarian cargoes to Donbas. Another humanitarian convoy is planned to be sent on May 28.
