KIEV, November 16. /TASS/. Ukraine’s foreign ministry did receive a Russian foreign ministry’s nota about plans to send a humanitarian convoy to eastern Ukraine, spokesman for the Ukrainian foreign ministry Yevgeny Perebeinos told the 112 television channel.
“The Russian side notified us by a nota about its plans to send this humanitarian convoy,” he said.
Earlier on Sunday, more than 70 trucks of the Russian emergencies ministry delivered about 450 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes to the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk in eastern Ukraine. The bulk of these cargoes were building materials and fuels.
In a period from August 23 to November 4, Russia sent four humanitarian convoys to Donetsk and Lugansk. More than 7,600 tonnes of relief aid - foodstuffs, drinking water, linen, electricity generators, water treatment stations, medicines and fuels - were delivered to eastern Ukraine.
