MOSCOW, September 17. /TASS/. Russian Emergencies Ministry’s convoy has delivered humanitarian aid to Macedonia that suffered from severe floods in August, the ministry’s press service told TASS on Saturday.
"A convoy with humanitarian aid for Macedonia’s population has arrived in Skopje. Five trucks brought mobile electric stations, pumps and food - canned fish and meat," a spokesperson for the Emergencies Ministry said.
The convoy was on the road for a week. Setting off from the ministry’s Noginsk rescue center in the Moscow Region, the convoy went to Novorossiysk. From there, it passed over 850 kilometers of the Black Sea by a ferry to reach Bulgaria’s Burgas. The convoy came to Skopje from there.
The humanitarian aid was delivered to Skopje by the order of the Russian government, at the request of the Macedonian authorities.
Over 20 people were killed and another 100 injured in floods that hit Skopje overnight to August 7. Over 5,000 houses and farms were partially or completely damaged by floods.
