MOSCOW, January 15. /TASS/. Nearly 150 schools and medical facilities have been restored in Ukraine’s war-ravaged south-east thanks to Russian relief aid sent to the Donetsk and Luhansk regions over the past six months, Russian Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Stepanov said on Thursday.
“Over the period of humanitarian aid supplies, some 150 socially significant facilities have been restored,” Stepanov told TASS. “These are healthcare facilities and schools,” he said, adding that restoration work continued in eastern territory shattered by conflict between government forces and local militias.
“Another 400 facilities are being restored at the moment,” Stepanov said, noting also that Russian relief cargoes helped to provide food to socially disadvantaged people living at more than 2,200 locations.
Since last August, 11 Emergencies Ministry convoys have delivered more than 14,800 tons of aid, predominantly food products, daily necessities and construction materials to key locations for citizens affected by military action in Luhansk and Donetsk.
Russia’s twelfth convoy is scheduled to leave for Donbas in two weeks. “I believe it will be dispatched at the end of January or the beginning of February,” Stepanov said.
