YANGON, October 14. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has delivered 30 tons of humanitarian aid for the citizens of Myanmar affected by the devastating flooding this summer.
The Il-76 aircraft arrived at the international airport of Yangon, the Southeast Asian country’s largest city, early on Wednesday, bringing foodstuffs, blankets, tents and also inflatable boats.
Russia’s Ambassador Vasily Pospelov said the situation in the country has been difficult for several months and Russia’s aid has arrived just in time. "The gesture has been highly appreciated by the leadership of Myanmar," he said.
Heavy monsoon rains caused the flood disaster in northwestern Myanmar in July this year. More than 1.6 million people have been affected and over 400,000 households have been evacuated. Some 12,000 houses have been destroyed in the Sagaing region that was particularly badly hit by the floods.
