MOSCOW, April 2 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has sent humanitarian aid to Lebanon, where dozens of thousands of refugees from Syria remain, the ministry’s information department told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
At 10:00 Moscow time an Il-76 plane with a 37 tonne humanitarian consignment onboard took off from the airfield in Ramenskoye near Moscow.
Russia sends this humanitarian consignment following the government’s decree of February 20.
In March spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Adrian Edwards, said in Lebanon there are almost 340,000 Syrian refugees, who fled that country since the conflict began in March 2011.
