MOSCOW, June 18. /TASS/. Russia’s emergencies ministry has send yet another, thirtieth, humanitarian convoy to Donbass, a ministry spokesman told TASS on Thursday.
"A convoy of trucks set off from the emergencies ministry’s Don rescue centre at 04:00 a.m. Moscow time. Before the border, the convoy will break in two to deliver about the same amount of cargoes to Donetsk and Lugansk. Both convoys will pass through all necessary border crossing procedures," the spokesman said.
The convoy is comprised of more than 100 trucks carrying more than 1,000 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes, mostly foods, articles of daily necessity and about 60 tonnes of medicines.
Since mid-August 2014, Russia’s emergencies ministry has delivered more than 37,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Donbass.
