MOSCOW, February 14. /TASS/. The Emergencies Ministry of Russia has formed another humanitarian convoy for Donbass, the ministry’s representative Oleg Voronov told TASS on Saturday.
"Formation of a humanitarian convoy for people living in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions is ready to go. The convoy unites over 170 trucks, which will deliver over 1,800 tonnes of cargo," he said. The humanitarian cargo is food products, medications, books for the Donetsk National University, construction materials and other essentials.
The ministry’s representative said the convoy had been prepared for a week in Russia’s Rostov region, to where the relief cargo was brought from other parts of Russia, including by air.
"Now, all the trucks are loaded, they underwent necessary services. Drivers are trained rescuers, who had delivered humanitarian aid to Donetsk and Lugansk earlier," he said.
The convoy will begin heading for Ukraine early on February 15 and the trucks are expected to arrive in Donetsk and Lugansk later in the morning.
This would be the 14th convoy of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, which delivers humanitarian aid to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. The ministry’s earlier convoys have delivered over 18,000 tonnes of cargo.
