"A convoy with humanitarian cargo for the Donetsk and Luhansk regions has departed from the EMERCOM’s Don rescue center in the Rostov Oblast," a spokesperson for the ministry told Sputnik.
The trucks are loaded with 600 tonnes of food packs for children, medicines, construction materials, as well as books to get Ukrainian kids ready for the upcoming school year. The convoy is accompanied by experienced rescuers and doctors.
The convoy will be inspected at two border crossings. Russia has brought almost 70,000 tonnes of aid to people in Ukraine since August 2014.
