MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A Russian Emergencies Ministry humanitarian convoy is about to depart to Macedonia to provide relief following a severe flood in the country, the ministry said in a press release on Thursday.

"A humanitarian convoy set for Macedonia has been formed on the territory of Noginsk emergency response center. It consists of five vehicles which will deliver mobile power units, electric pumps and food — canned fish and meat," the press release read.

The convoy will leave for Skopje soon on the request of the Macedonian authorities, according to the release.

In early August, severe rains hit Macedonia, leading to floods in the capital of Skopje and western parts of the country. At least 22 died and dozens went missing or have been injured.
