MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has dispatched the 42nd truck convoy with humanitarian aid to Donbass, the ministry’s press service told TASS.
"At 04.00 Moscow time (01.00 GMT) the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s 42nd truck convoy loaded with humanitarian aid for residents of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions left the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s Donskoi rescue centre," the spokesman said.
Over 100 white-painted trucks are supplying the war-damaged region with 1,000 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes - largely foodstuffs (canned food, cereal and sugar).
"Public organisations and trade unions from Russian regions provided humanitarian cargoes for the convoy," he said.
A total of 50,000 tonnes of essential humanitarian goods have been delivered to Donbass since August 2014.
