MOSCOW, July 12. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has started preparing the 32nd humanitarian aid convoy to east Ukraine's Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics known as the Donbass region, a ministry spokesperson said on Sunday.
"The trucks that will be part of another convoy with humanitarian aid for citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions set off for the Rostov region from the Noginsk rescue center of the Russian Emergencies Ministry at 5.05 a.m. on Sunday [02.05GMT]," the spokesperson said.
The convoy with humanitarian aid is being formed in the Donskoy rescue center in the Rostov region, in southern Russia, and will depart for Donbass in the coming days. The vehicles from the Moscow region will be joined by trucks from across Russia in the Rostov region.
"A humanitarian cargo will be formed here, consisting mainly of foodstuffs, medicines, essential supplies and other items required for residents of Donbass," the spokesperson said.

Since mid-August, the convoys of the Russian Emergencies Ministry have delivered more than 39,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Donbass.
