NOGINSK, March 26. /TASS/. Russia’s Emergencies Ministry will send its 51st humanitarian aid convoy to the troubled Donbass region, the Minister Vladimir Puchkov said Saturday.
"Currently we are preparing the convoy, particularly at the territory of the Noginck rescue center," Puchkov said, adding that the date of dispatch has not been defined yet as it is being accorded with Ukrainian colleagues and international organizations.
According to Puchkov, Russia will continue to deliver humanitarian cargos to Donbass. The official added that the situation in the region is getting better as "infrastructure is being improved and the economic entities are being restored, which is a challenging mission though it is being implemented."
Since August 2014, Russia has delivered 50 convoys containing more than 60,000 tons of humanitarian cargos to Ukraine’s Donbass region. Also, as Vladimir Puchkov said earlier on Saturday, "we’ve assisted in improving the social infrastructure." "We took care of hospitals, medical offices, power engineering facilities. The infrastructure was restored to the minimum necessary extent in a short period of time," he added.
