"A humanitarian convoy set for Macedonia's population has left the Noginsk emergency response center. It consists of five vehicles, which will deliver mobile power units, electric pumps and food — canned fish and meat," the ministry's spokesperson told reporters.
The convoy heads for Skopje, on the request of the Macedonian authorities. Its route runs both through land and sea. According to the ministry, the convoy will head for Novorossiysk, from where it will go by ferry to the Bulgarian city of Burgas via the Black Sea, and from Bulgaria it would leave for its final destination.
