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.

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