Ukraine’s State Service for Emergency Situations reported on Thursday that 71 trucks that left Kiev, Kharkiv and Dnepropetrovsk would deliver 773 tonnes of essentials to the town of Starobelsk in the Luhansk region where they would be handed over to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in compliance with international rules.
The ICRC will distribute the aid among civilians who were worst hit by Kiev’s security operation in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
The ICRC reported earlier this month that the armed clashes between the government forces and militias in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions had aggravated the humanitarian situation in eastern Ukraine, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes.
Russia suggested sending relief convoys to Donetsk, Luhansk and other Ukrainian cities receiving huge numbers of displaced persons at the UN Security Council meeting on August 6.
