DONETSK, September 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Authorities in the self-proclaimed Dontesk People's Republic of eastern Ukraine have set up a special commission to ensure efficient local distribution of humanitarian aid delivered from Russia.

The commission's creation follows the arrival of a 200-truck convoy of Russian relief supplies in the city of Donetsk on Saturday. Trucks have been unloaded but distribution has still to begin, the deputy chairman of the republic's Council of Ministers, Alexander Karaman, said on Monday.

Two previous arrivals have already brought 4,000 tonnes of cargo to support the citizens of Luhansk, another regional city caught up in past weeks of conflict betwen local militia forces and Ukrainian government troops.

Regional administration heads will work with local deputies, officials and volonteers to distribute the aid more effectively, Karaman said.
