MOSCOW, March 26. /TASS/. Two Russian Emergencies Ministry’s convoys with humanitarian had have arrived in Donetsk and Luhansk, the ministry’s National center on crisis situations told TASS on Thursday.
"140 trucks have delivered to two regions more than 1,600 tons of humanitarian aid, mostly seeds for spring sowing — barley, maize, sunflower," the center said. Medicaments, necessities and food were also delivered to Donbas.
"At the moment, trucks are being unloaded at storehouses in Donetsk and Lugansk. After they are unloaded, trucks will immediately head back to the Rostov Region," the center added.
This is the 22nd Russian Emergencies Ministry’s humanitarian convoy for Donbass. Since August 2014, more than 27 tons of humanitarian aid has already been delivered to war-torn regions in eastern Ukraine.
Emergencies Ministry’s head Vladimir Puchkov told TASS that the ministry has approved plans to provide humanitarian aid to Donbass. "All plans have been approved for the future. We plan to continue providing humanitarian aid and support to people in the east of Ukraine," Puchkov said.
