MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. People from all over Russia have contributed around 157 tons of New Year gifts for children of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk Republics, Russian Children's Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov told journalists on Monday.
"Ten freight trucks will leave for the Luhanks and Donetsk self-proclaimed republics approximately on December 18 to deliver the New Year gifts — toys, New Year Tree decorations, sweets — to the children," he said.
"In the framework of the New Year gift campaign, funds have been raised to buy essentials for children's establishments on the Donetsk and Luhansk territories. In the meantime, heads of children's organizations on the Donetsk and Luhansk territories have been asked what in particular their children need now," the ombudsman said. The next humanitarian convoy from Russia will deliver the essentials to every concrete children's establishment," Astakhov said.
The charity act titled "The New Year Tree to Novorossiya" was organized on the initiative of the Russian Children's ombudsman under the president of the Russian Federation with support of the Saint Basil the Great Charitable Foundation.
