MOSCOW, October 29. /TASS/. A Russian humanitarian aid convoy for residents in Luhansk and Donetsk regions in troubled south-east Ukraine that left the Moscow region on Tuesday came to south-central Russia’s Voronezh region. The relief aid convoy will go to the border with Ukraine after drivers take some rest and refuel their trucks, deputy head of the Emergencies Ministry’s national center of management in emergency situations Oleg Voronov told TASS.
The humanitarian aid convoy comprises 100 trucks. One thousand tons of cargoes, including building materials, food products, medicines and supplies for winter preparation will be delivered for residents in Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Emergency jets have also supplied relief goods totalling around 100 tons in southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don where cargoes will be reloaded on trucks, the senior emergencies official said.
Russian relief aid convoys plan to deliver up to 3,000 tons of humanitarian aid to Luhansk and Donetsk regions within a week, Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Stepanov said.
This is the fourth Russian humanitarian aid convoy for eastern Ukraine. First three convoys supplied a total 6,000 tons of cargoes, particularly foodstuffs, including cereals and canned food, medicines, power generators, warm clothes and bottled drinking water to Donetsk and Luhansk.
