MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. Russia has sent two planes with humanitarian aid to Vanuatu after a powerful cyclone wreaked havoc on the tiny island nation in the South Pacific, the Russian Emergencies Ministry said on Sunday
"Two Ilyushin Il-76 planes have taken off from the Ramensky airport in the Moscow Region with humanitarian cargo aboard today on the government’s instruction. The humanitarian aid weighs over 60 tons," Russia’s Emergencies Ministry said.
The Russian aircraft will deliver food, including sugar, canned milk, meat and fish, and also portable power generators, tents, blankets and basic necessities.
"The humanitarian aid is intended for Vanuatu residents who have suffered from a disastrous tropical cyclone that has destroyed or damaged 90% of buildings and ruined the harvest," the Emergencies Ministry said.
Vanuatu is a small Pacific nation situated on 83 islands of the New Hebrides archipelago northeast of Australia. Vanuatu residents live on 65 islands. The tiny nation has a population of 267,000 people.
