GROZNY, August 11, 15:50 /ITAR-TASS/. A new shipment of relief aid has arrived in east Ukraine from Chechnya, president of the Russian Caucasus republic Ramzan Kadyrov said on Monday, having last month pledged $7.5 million-worth of vital supplies for the embattled region.
“A new shipment of relief aid has arrived to the Luhansk People’s Republic. A regional public fund named after Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov, the hero of Russia, has sent equipment necessary for surgical units, first aid and treatment of serious gunshot and fragmentation wounds,” Kadyrov wrote in social networks. Supplies also included daily essentials for those trapped in the area of military hostilities.
“People in the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics need urgent aid and support without waiting for the United States and Europe to agree on some kind of corridors,” Kadyrov said.
The Chechen fund, named after Ramzan Kadyrov's assassinated father, sent the first aid shipment last week, delivering 50-60 kilowatt power generators, medical supplies, bandage materials and medical instruments.
