MOSCOW, April 29 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Emergencies Ministry will send two aircraft carrying humanitarian aid to earthquake-hit China on Tuesday, the ministry said Monday.

“The [Ilyushin] Il-76 aircraft... will deliver essentials and food to China: overall, some 36 tons of cargo,” the ministry said in a statement.

A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Lushan County in southwest China’s Sichuan province on April 20, killing about 200 people and injuring over 13,000. An estimated 2 million people were affected by the quake.

On Sunday, the Russian Emergencies Ministry reported that it had already delivered over 13 metric tons of humanitarian aid by plane to Sichuan.
