MOSCOW, March 23. /TASS/. Russia’s new convoy with humanitarian aid for Ukraine’s Donbass is traveling towards the state border with Ukraine, a source from the press service of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has told Tass.
"A convoy of 40 vehicles with more than 500 tonnes of humanitarian aid has left Kovalyovka in the [Ukraine-bordering] Rostov region, heading to the Russian-Ukrainian border," he said.
According to the ministry’s source, the bulk of the cargo is food packages for children made up of infant milk, fruit, vegetable and meat puree, juices and porridge.
The convoy will cross the border at the Matveyev Kurgan border check point after going through customs clearance and border procedures, and will then split into two convoy starveling to Donetsk and Lugansk.
This is the 63rd humanitarian convoy since August 2014. More than 67,000 tons of humanitarian aid has been delivered to Ukraine’s eastern Lugansk and Donetsk regions since then, helping the region to avoid a humanitarian disaster.
