MOSCOW, December 12. /TASS/. Ukrainian customs officers and border guards participated in control of the Russian humanitarian convoy when it crossed the border, a Russian border guard official said.
The head of the press service of the Russian border guard department in the Rostov region, Vasily Malayev, told TASS that Ukrainian border guards and customs officers together with Russian services participated in control of the convoy at the Russian Donetsk and Matveev-Kurgan checkpoints.
The Russian convoy of more than 130 trucks carrying humanitarian aid for eastern Ukrainian regions crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border on Friday, a Russian Emergencies Ministry official told TASS.
The humanitarian cargoes passed through customs procedures at the Matveev Kurgan and Donetsk checkpoints in the Rostov region, and more than 50 trucks headed for Donetsk and more than 80 for Luhansk, the official said.
Earlier, the convoy was divided into two. They will deliver more than 1,200 tons of humanitarian cargoes — food products, equipment and materials to ensure work of social facilities, more than 800 tons to Luhansk and more than 400 to Donetsk.
It is the ninth Russian convoy for Donbass. Since August 11, eight convoys have delivered more than 10,700 tons of humanitarian cargoes.
One more convoy is planned to leave for Donbass before the New Year to deliver 1,000 tons food products, necessities, materials to repair the social infrastructure and toys and other gifts for children, Russian Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Stepanov said earlier.
