MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. More than 2 million tons of cargoes have been delivered to southern Russia’s Rostov region as part of aid for Ukrainian refugees and humanitarian convoys for Donbas, Federation Council Deputy Speaker Yury Vorobyov said on Tuesday.
“Over 2 million tons of various cargoes, including foodstuffs, essentials and medicines from Russia’s federal subjects have been delivered to the Rostov region,” Vorobyov said at a meeting of a committee for public support for citizens of Ukraine’s south-east.
The lawmaker said an effort had been organized in the country to collect and distribute the humanitarian aid to the refugees who stayed and continue staying in Russia. Currently, the Rostov region hosts some 38,658 Ukrainian refugees, including around 11,500 children, according to latest figures.
Since mid-August, Russia’s Emergency Situations Ministry has sent 10 humanitarian aid convoys to eastern Ukraine, which have delivered more than 13,000 tons of cargoes.
