MOSCOW, 3 March. /TASS/. The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has completed the formation of another humanitarian convoy bound for Donbas. The convoy ready to move to Donbas numbers more than 160 trucks loaded with relief supplies with an overall weight of more than 1,800 tons, spokesman for the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations Alexander Drobyshevsky told TASS.
"Foodstuffs account for 90% of the overall humanitarian load, which also includes essentials and vitally important facilities for the population," the spokesman said. The humanitarian convoy with relief supplies for the population in the war-torn areas is leaving for the Luhansk and Donetsk regions on March 4," Drobyshevsky said.
At present, another convoy, which is the 18th humanitarian convoy in succession, is being formed in the Donetsk region on the basis of the Donetsk Rescue Center of the Ministry for Emergency Situations. It is one of the three new humanitarian convoys which will be sent to Donbas in March, the spokesman said.
The humanitarian cargoes with an overall load of more than 22,000 tons have been delivered to the population of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions by 16 truck convoys of the ministry since last August.
