"The customs clearance has been completed at two border crossings…Two columns crossed the border, one of them is heading to Donetsk, the other to Luhansk," Oleg Voronov, deputy chief of the crisis management center with the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry, said.
Voronov noted that more than 900 tons of aid will be delivered to both Donetsk and Luhansk. According to Voronov, the humanitarian cargo includes food, medicines, construction materials and student books.
The 14th aid convoy comprises more than 170 vehicles carrying a total of more than 1,800 tons of humanitarian aid to the people of the conflict-torn Donbas.
Ukraine's eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk have been suffering from a severe humanitarian crisis as a result of a military operation launched by Kiev against local independence supporters in mid-April, 2014.
Russia has sent 13 humanitarian aid convoys with more than 18,000 tons of aid since last August. The 13th convoy returned to Russia earlier this week, after bringing over 1,100 tons of aid to Donetsk and Luhansk.
