VALAAM (Karelia), August 13. /TASS/. Russian humanitarian aid convoys will be sent to the Donbas region next year too, Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Federation Council Yury Vorobyov said on Thursday.
"This month alone, there will be two [humanitarian] convoys, and we are planning to send more next year," he said.
Vorobyov noted that humanitarian aid was delivered to south-eastern Ukraine by the Russian Emergencies Ministry, but humanitarian aid was collected in different regions of Russia, with public organizations and private individuals making their contribution.
He added that senators locally monitored the collection of humanitarian aid for the Donbas region and "looked how reception centers for refugees from southeastern Ukraine worked, how assistance was provided, how they were accommodated in our country and what problems emerged in this regard."
"As long as there is a need to render assistance to people in south-eastern Ukraine, we will do that," Vorobyov said, adding that the situation in Donbas continued to be very difficult. "Unfortunately, Ukraine’s blockade of these territories prevents all social institutions from functioning normally."
