Another convoy  with humanitarian aid for the residents of Donbass left the Donetsk Rescue Center of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and is moving to the Russian-Ukrainian border, the ministry told EADaily.

Over one hundred trucks will deliver more than 1000 tons of humanitarian aid to the residents of Lugansk and Donetsk regions, mainly foodstuffs and medicines necessary to the local hospitals. “More than 32 tons of humanitarian aid from this convoy, mainly medicines, was delivered to Rostov by plane from Moscow Region,” the ministry said.

Before arriving at the state border, the convoy will be divided into two equal parts. One will head towards the Donetsk checkpoint, the other – towards Matveyev Kurgan to undergo the necessary customs procedures in line with the international laws regulating the delivery of humanitarian cargoes.

Since mid-August 2014, Russia has sent over 40,000 tons of humanitarian aid for the residents of Lugansk and Donetsk regions.
