MOSCOW, July 22. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry said on Wednesday its aircraft would deliver medicines to the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don where the next relief aid convoy for embattled east Ukraine was being formed.
"Today, at 9 a.m., an Emergencies Ministry Il-76 plane took off from the Ramenskoye Airport [near Moscow] with humanitarian aid for citizens in Ukraine’s southeast," the ministry said, adding that more than 32 tonnes of medicines would be despatched to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions with the relief aid convoy.
In Rostov-on-Don, the cargo will be loaded onto trucks of the ministry’s convoy, formed in Donskoy rescue center. That will transport food products, medicines, daily necessities and other essential items for citizens affected by military action in the war-torn region.
Since mid-August last year, Russia’s convoys have delivered more than 40,000 tonnes of relief supplies.
