MOSCOW, October 15. /TASS/. Russian Emergencies Ministry’s convoy with humanitarian aid for Donbass has arrived at the border where cargoes are undergoing customs procedures, the ministry’s press service told TASS on Thursday.
"As of now, customs and border control procedures are being carried out at two border checkpoints - Donetsk and Matveyev Kurgan. After completing the procedures, the trucks will head for their destinations - Donetsk and Lugansk," the press service said.
More than 100 trucks will deliver more than 1,100 tons of humanitarian aid to Donbass, including food (canned food, cereals, tea, salt), necessities, office supplies, firefighting equipment and medicaments. Humanitarian aid was collected by public organizations and labor unions from different Russian regions.
"Before loading cargo, scheduled technical examination of trucks was carried out, they were refueled, and expendable materials were replaced. Drivers received instructions, and they are ready to go," the Russian Emergencies Ministry said.
Since August 2014, convoys delivered more than 49,000 tons of humanitarian aid to Donbass.
