MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. Russia’s emergencies ministry has sent yet another, 50th, humanitarian convoy to Donbass, the ministry’s press service said on Thursday.
"About 90 trucks with more than 1,100 tons of humanitarian cargoes set off at 04:00 a.m. Moscow time from the Russian emergencies ministry’s Don rescue center [in the southern Rostov region] for Donetsk and Lugansk," the press service said.
Humanitarian cargoes will include food products, textbooks and study aids and articles of daily necessity.
"The convoy will break in two before the state border. One convoy will go to the Donetsk border checkpoint, the other - to the Matveyev Kurgan checkpoint," the press service said, adding that the trucks will be checked at the border checkpoints by Russian and Ukrainian customs and border officers in the presence of monitors from the OCSE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) mission.
Since mid-August 2014, the Russian emergencies ministry has delivered more than 59,000 tons of humanitarian aid, of which about 43,000 tons were food products, to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
