MOSCOW, March 12 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s emergencies ministry has sent another plane with humanitarian aid to Syria, a ministry spokeswoman told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“At 10:05 Moscow time on Tuesday, an Ilyushin-62 airplane with humanitarian aid took off from the Ramenskoye airfield outside Moscow for Syria’s Latakia,” Irina Rossius said.
The plane is carrying 11 tons of humanitarian cargoes, including blankets and foods.
Earlier, on February 19, the Russian emergencies ministry delivered 40 tons of humanitarian cargoes to war-seized Syria.
According to the United Nations’ estimates, the civil war in Syria has already claimed 70,000 human lives, more than one million refugees have fled the country, and as many as two million displaced people are staying in Syria.
Since the outbreak of the conflict in Syria, the European Union countries have sent humanitarian aid worth 428 million euro. At the same time, they have imposed toughest sanctions against Damascus, virtually banning any economic contacts with that country and blacklisting practically all Syria’s top government officials as persona non grata in the European Union.
