MOSCOW, May 28. /TASS/. The Russian Emergencies Ministry’s airplane carrying humanitarian aid to war-torn Syria will bring back home nationals from Russia and countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) - former Soviet republics - who wish to leave the country, the ministry’s press service told TASS.
"The Ilyushin Il-76 plane leaves on Thursday morning, May 28," the spokesman said. "In line with the Russian government’s resolution, it will deliver over 21.5 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes to Latakia - foodstuffs, including canned meat and fish, sugar and infant food, and basic necessities."
The aircraft is expected to bring back home about 90 Russians alongside citizens of other CIS countries, who wish to leave Syria after recent escalation of combat activities there.
In recent years, Russia has delivered over 530 tonnes of foodstuffs, medications and essentials. The Russian Emergencies Ministry’s aircraft have evacuated around 1,100 Russians, Ukrainians, Belarussians and people of other CIS and European countries from the area of the armed conflict.
