MOSCOW, June 23. /TASS/. A convoy of the Russian Emergencies Ministry has delivered another batch of humanitarian aid to Lugansk, the ministry’s press service has told TASS.
"More than 40 vehicles that brought more than 400 tons of humanitarian cargo, including foodstuffs, medications and construction materials, have arrived in Lugansk," the press service said, adding that there were no unforeseen situations and "the cargo was delivered as usual."
All the vehicles went through customs and border control on the Russian-Ukrainian border in the presence of representatives of the Ukrainian customs and border services. Both the vehicles and supporting documents were checked.
The cars are currently unloaded in the presence of local authorities representatives who distribute humanitarian aid, including among the socially significant facilities in the Lugansk region. "As soon as the last car is unloaded, all vehicles will immediately leave for Russia’s Rostov region," the Emergencies Ministry said.
This is the 53rd humanitarian aid convoy for residents of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions since mid-August 2014. Since then, more than 62,000 tons of humanitarian aid have been delivered to Donbass, which helped prevent a humanitarian disaster in the region.
