MOSCOW, November 16, 20:19 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Emergencies Ministry will provide additional humanitarian aid to the typhoon-stricken Philippines if so requested.
“Our relief mission in the Philippines is over for now,” Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Stepanov said on Saturday, November 16. “We arrived in the country, considered all questions of assistance to rescuers and medics, and discussed all options of using a mobile hospital and providing humanitarian aid.”
The Philippine authorities opted for relief supplies and “we delivered 56 tonnes of food,” Stepanov said, adding that on the way back the plane picked up Russians who could not leave the country on their own.
“I think we have fulfilled all of us tasks. We agreed with the Philippine authorities that if there are requests for humanitarian aid, we will respond,” Stepanov said.
He noted that the ministry would bring Russian citizens back from the Philippines if they need help.
