MOSCOW, August 24. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry said on Monday it has started preparing the 37th humanitarian aid convoy for Donbas that will deliver textbooks for the new school year in war-torn region in Ukraine’s south-east.
On Monday morning, some of the vehicles that will be part of the next convoy left the Noginsk rescue center, in the Moscow region, and are heading to the Rostov region, in southern Russia, a spokesperson for the Emergencies Ministry told TASS.
The humanitarian aid convoy "will consist of more than 40 trucks that carry around 700 tons of textbooks provided by Russia’s Ministry of Education for the pupils and students of Donbas," the spokesperson said.
The vehicles from other Russian regions will join the trucks from Noginsk in the Donskoy rescue center of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, in the Rostov region, the ministry said.
"The next convoy of the Emergencies Ministry is due to deliver more than 1,200 tons of humanitarian cargos. Besides the textbooks and furniture for the preschool facilities of Donbas, the cargo will include over 500 tons of foodstuffs — grains, flour, tea and canned goods," the ministry said.
Since mid-August last year, a total of 36 convoys of Russia’s Emergencies Ministry have delivered more than 44,000 tons of humanitarian cargos for the citizens of the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
