NOGINSK (the Moscow region), November 19 /TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations will send more relief aid to the war-stricken population in Ukraine’s east, the Ministry’s spokesperson, Alexander Drobyshevsky, told TASS on Wednesday.
“A campaign to collect the relief aid is under way in cooperation with the federal bodies of executive power and regions and territories of Russia. It will continue as long as necessary,” Drobyshevsky said.
A Russian truck convoy that had delivered 450 tons of relief cargo to Donetsk and Luhansk on November 16 returned to the Russian Emergencies Ministry rescue center in Noginsk, near Moscow, on Wednesday.
“It comprises electro-technical equipment and assembly parts, building materials as well as oil and lubricants,” Drobyshevsky said adding a regular stage of an operation to deliver relief aid to Donbas had successfully been completed.
He noted that the mission had passed without any incidents.
"No emergency situations emerged neither on the way to Donbas nor on the way back home,” Drobyshevsky went on to say. The Emergency Ministry’s convoy was welcomed warmly both in Donetsk and Luhansk,” Drobyshevsky said.
Seven Russian relief convoys delivered more than 8,000 tons of relief aid to the conflict-hit east of Ukraine from August 23 to November 16 including food, water, linen, electric power generators, water filtration stations, fuel and medical supplies.
