MOSCOW, 7 March. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has handed over to the authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR respectively) the humanitarian aid raised by Cyprus’s residents and public organisations, the ministry’s spokesman, Alexander Drobyshevsky, told TASS on Saturday.
The Russian air carrier Aeroflot has airlifted the relief cargoes from Cyprus to Moscow by three flights.
Public organisations and ordinary Cypriots had raised over 5,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid, mostly clothes along with foodstuffs and daily necessities, in support of the DPR and LPR people.
"The Emercom agency reporting to the Russian Emergencies Ministry had organised the aid delivery to the border checkpoints in the southern Rostov region where the humanitarian aid was loaded into the cars of the DPR and LPR representatives who then set off to Donetsk and Lugansk," Drobyshevsky said.
