MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. A Russian convoy with humanitarian aid for eastern Ukraine will head from the Moscow region to southern Russia’s Rostov region on Thursday, the Emergencies Ministry said.
“On December 18, at 06:00am Moscow Time another convoy with humanitarian cargo for the Luhansk and Donetsk regions will depart from the Noginsk rescue center,” a ministry representative said on Wednesday.
The vehicles will be sent to the Rostov region where the tenth convoy with humanitarian aid is due to be formed. Cars from other Russian regions will also head to this area.
An official spokesman for Russia’s Emergencies Ministry, Alexander Drobyshevsky, said earlier the humanitarian cargo will consist of foodstuffs, construction materials and the New Year gifts.
“The convoy will be formed in the coming days and will be sent when completed,” Drobyshevsky said.
The previous nine convoys since August 11 have delivered around 12,000 tons of humanitarian supplies to Ukraine's conflict-torn east. The cargo included foodstuffs, equipment and materials for restoring the work of important social facilities.
