"Today, trucks carrying humanitarian cargo meant for residents of Donbass started moving from the Noginsk rescue center of the Russian Emergencies Ministry to the Rostov region," the press service said.

Donbass has been severely affected by Kiev’s special military operation, launched in the eastern Donetsk and Lugansk regions in April 2014. The operation was a response to local residents' refusal to recognize the new coup-installed government in the country.

Russia has sent over 63,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Donbass since August 2014.
