MOSCOW, January 5. /TASS/. A Russian truck convoy carrying humanitarian supplies for Donbas, which left Noginsk, near Moscow, for the Rostov Region early Sunday mourning has stopped for the night in the Voronezh Region, the Emergencies Ministry said.
“The drivers have checked in at a hotel and had an extra briefing on driving in bad weather. Practically all of them have a previous record of delivering humanitarian aid to the Donetsk and Luhansk regions,” the Emergencies Ministry official said.
The convoy will proceed for the Rostov Region after night-time rest and technical maintenance. The 60 trucks are carrying relief aid.
“This convoy, and also trucks heading for the Rostov Region from other parts of Russia will be pooled into an 11th humanitarian aid convoy for Donbas,” the Emergencies Ministry said.
The chief of the Emergencies Ministry’s crisis situations management center, Viktor Yatsutsenko, earlier said the 11th convoy consisting of over 120 trucks would deliver 1,400 tons of humanitarian cargoes — mostly foodstuffs and baby food — on January 8.
