MOSCOW, September 30. /TASS/. Russia's Emergencies Ministry convoy has delivered further relief aid for embattled east Ukraine, a ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.
"All trucks with humanitarian cargo have arrived in Donetsk and Luhansk. They are currently being unloaded at storehouses," the spokesman told TASS, adding that no incidents occurred on the way to the eastern Donbas region.
The procession of more than 100 trucks brought over 1,200 tonnes of relief aid. These are canned food, cereals, macaroni products, tea and sugar alongside medicines for Donbas health care facilities. The humanitarian cargo to form the convoy has been provided by social organisations and trade union associations from various regions of Russia.
After unloading, the trucks will leave Donetsk and Luhansk and head back to Russia’s southern Rostov region.
It is the 40th Russian Emergencies Ministry’s convoy with humanitarian aid for Donbas.
Since August last year, Russia’s convoys have delivered more than 48,000 tonnes of relief supplies, mostly foodstuffs, medicines, building materials and other essential items for citizens affected by the conflict.
