MOSCOW, August 14. /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 source said the convoy left the Don Rescue Center of the Emergencies Ministry [in the Ukraine-bordering Rostov region] at 4 am, Moscow time, heading to the state border.
The 35th humanitarian convoy of more than 100 trucks is carrying food, medicines and items of first necessity to the eastern Ukrainian Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
At the state border it will split into two equal parts, one of which will head to the Donetsk region, and another one - to 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 Donbas more than 42,000 tonnes of aid.
