MOSCOW, July 21. /TASS/. Russian Emergencies Ministry’s truck convoy with humanitarian supplies for residents of Ukraine’s south-eastern Donbass region has arrived in Donetsk, the ministry press service told TASS on Thursday.
"Trucks of the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s humanitarian convoy have arrived at the destination point in the Donetsk region. No unforeseen situations occurred on the way. The unloading of the trucks has begun at the warehouse", the ministry reported.
Earlier, the humanitarian cargo passed customs clearance at a border checkpoint in strict accordance with international law. All the procedures at the checkpoints were carried out in the presence of representatives of the Ukrainian customs and border services. Not only the vehicles, but also the accompanying documents for the humanitarian cargo carried by the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s trucks were checked.
Representatives of the local authorities that distribute humanitarian aid among social facilities of the Donetsk region are present at Donetsk warehouses during the unloading.
More than 50 trucks of the Russian Emergencies Ministry’ convoy have delivered 400 tons of food products, medicines, textbooks and other goods. Immediately after the unloading, all the trucks will depart for Russia’s Rostov region. This is the 54th humanitarian convoy since August 2014. More than 62,000 tons of humanitarian aid has been delivered to Ukraine’s eastern Lugansk and Donetsk regions in about two years, helping the region to avoid a humanitarian disaster.
