MOSCOW, June 11. /TASS/. A new humanitarian aid convoy from Russia is traveling towards the state border with Ukraine, a source from the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has told Tass.
The 29th humanitarian convoy of more than 100 vehicles started from Russia’s Ukraine-bordering Rostov region at 4 am, Moscow time, the source said. Trucks are carrying food, including canned meat, fish and milk, sugar, salt as well as items of first necessity and materials for educational establishments.
At the state border it will split into two approximately equal parts, one of which will head for the Donetsk region, and another one - for the Lugansk region, the source said.
The convoy is self-sustainable, having medics as well as technical personnel, who can repair vehicles if necessary.
From August 2014, Russian humanitarian convoys have delivered to Donbass more than 36,000 tons of aid for the war-torn region.
