MOSCOW, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. A Russian-Serbian humanitarian center has sent relief aid to neighboring Slovenia, Alexander Drobyshevsky, the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations spokesperson said on Monday.
“Trucks delivered relief cargo, including five 120-kilowatt electric power stations, to the Slovenian capital Ljubljana where it was handed over to the protection and rescue department of the Slovenian Defense Ministry,” Drobyshevsky clarified, adding the aid had been sent at the Slovenian government’s request.
Eastern Europe has been hit by a powerful storm for several weeks. Bitter frosts, blizzards, snowfalls and crusted ground have disrupted electric supplies into many regions.
The Russian-Serbian humanitarian center based in the town of Nis, southern Serbia, has all the necessary equipment for liquidating the consequences of various emergencies.
“The electric power stations handed over to Slovenia had been provided by the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations and stored at the humanitarian center’s warehouse,” Drobyshevsky explained.
He noted that the Russian-Serbian humanitarian center and the Slovenian Defense Ministry had established effective cooperation in liquidation of emergency situations.
