DONETSK, October 31. /TASS/. The Russian Emergencies Ministry truck convoy has delivered humanitarian aid to Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region. About 50 trucks have brought to the region food products and construction materials with the total weight of some 500 tons.
After crossing the border with Ukraine at the Donetsk-Izvarino checkpoint on Friday, one part of the convoy headed for Donetsk and another — for Luhansk. A total of 1,000 tons of humanitarian supplies will be delivered to these eastern Ukrainian regions. The Russian Emergencies Ministry’s truck convoy departed from Noginsk near Moscow on October 28.
Russian Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Stepanov said previously that the ministry’s truck convoys would deliver to the Luhansk and Donetsk regions of Ukraine up to 3,000 tons of humanitarian cargoes.
This is the fourth Russian humanitarian aid convoy to Ukraine. The previous three convoys have delivered to Donetsk and Lugansk 6,000 tons of cargoes — food products, including cereals and canned food, as well as medicines, electricity generators, warm clothes and bottled drinking water.
