MOSCOW, November 2 (RIA Novosti) — A new Russian humanitarian aid convoy has been loaded and will deliver 1,000 ton of aid to Donetsk and Luhansk regions in Donbas, Oleg Voronov, a deputy chief of the national crisis management center of the Emergency Situations Ministry said Sunday.
"More than 100 trucks will deliver to Donetsk and Luhansk regions a total of more than 1,000 ton of humanitarian aid – sugar and canned meet, building materials, fuel and medications," Voronov said.
Deputy chief of the national crisis management center noted that the humanitarian aid convoy has been loaded, and "the delivery will start in the nearest future".
Russia has previously sent four humanitarian convoys to eastern Ukraine, which has suffered greatly from the Kiev-led military operation against the region's independence supporters.
The last convoy was delivered on October 31 and consisted of 100 trucks carrying 1,000 ton of humanitarian aid that comprised food and building materials.
