BISHKEK, April 10 (RIA Novosti, Yulia Orlova) - An IL 76 plane landed in Manas, Bishkek airport, today to deliver a humanitarian cargo. Belonging to Russia's Emergencies Ministry, the plane has brought two electric generation installations and 55 tents, each to house thirty. The freight is to urgently pass on to Kyrgyzstan's worst-off areas, says Andrei Iordan, adviser to the Kyrgyz Prime Minister.

Another of the ministry's IL 76s is expected in the Kyrgyz capital tomorrow, and a third will bring a humanitarian cargo to Osh, regional center in the country's south.

The two countries' tops agreed on Russian aid to Kyrgyzstan within a few days after a rising of March 24 overthrew the previous Kyrgyz regime.

Another humanitarian cargo-four railroad cars bringing several thousand tons of mineral fertilizer, seed and construction materials-has come today from Uzbekistan as its government donation, reports Kyrgyzstan's Ecology and Emergencies Ministry press service.
