MOSCOW, December 21 (Sputnik) – Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev made an order to establish a commission that would be tasked with providing support to the residents of southeastern Ukraine, the Russian cabinet has announced.

The interdepartmental commission is being established amid a "critical humanitarian situation in the southeastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, and taking into account the mass appeals of citizens and organizations to provide humanitarian assistance to the affected areas", according to a statement released on the Russian cabinet's website Sunday.

According to Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov, Russia plans to send another humanitarian aid convoy to Eastern Ukraine, which will be the country's tenth aid convoy to the war-torn Donetsk and Luhansk regions. - Sputnik International

The commission will have to coordinate its efforts with the Ukrainian government, the statement said.

Earlier on Sunday, a representative of Russia's Emergencies Ministry told RIA Novosti that the tenth Russian humanitarian convoy, carrying aid to southeastern Ukraine has departed from Russia's Rostov region.

In total, Russia has delivered over 12,000 tons of aid to residents of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions that have been suffering from a severe humanitarian crisis as a result of Kiev's military operation launched against local independence supporters in mid-April.
