MOSCOW, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s emergencies ministry has sent a batch of humanitarian aid to drought-stricken Namibia, a spokeswoman for the ministry told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“An Ilyushin-76 airplane took off from the Ramenskoye airfield outside Moscow at 19:00 Moscow time,” she said. “It will deliver 35 tons of humanitarian aid - canned foods, sugar and flour - to Windhoek.”
According to the spokeswoman, the humanitarian aid is being delivered under an instruction of the Russian government. “The Namibian authorities asked help from the international community because of the unprecedented drought,” she noted.
