MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. International humanitarian missions have delivered more than 1,700 tons of foodstuffs, medicines and construction materials after receiving permission for activity from authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, a local accreditation committee has said.
"In the first half of October, the International Committee of the Red Cross has delivered to the DPR a total of 77 trucks, each carrying 20 tons of cargo," a spokesman said.
Some 1,240 tons of this assistance have been distributed by the organization’s representatives and around 300 tons of various humanitarian cargos will be handed over to the citizens in the coming weeks, the ICRC has said.
The Czech charity organization, People in Need (PIN), sent two convoys with 30 and 179 tons of aid to the DPR earlier this month. The assistance has not been distributed so far.
DPR’s parliament speaker Denis Pushilin said earlier that three humanitarian organizations — the ICRC, People in Need and Doctors Without Borders — have been granted permission for work in the republic’s territory. However, checks into the activity of the latter are ongoing.
