New Russian Humanitarian Convoy to Donbass Took Gifts for WWII Veterans
Russia's 25th humanitarian aid convoy with food and medicine for the residents of the crisis-hit region, as well as presents for World War II veterans has departed for Donbass.
"The convoy left the Emergencies Ministry's Donskoy rescue center in the Rostov Region at 04:00 Moscow time and is headed for the state border," Oleg Voronov, deputy chief of the crisis management center with the Russian Emergencies Ministry, said. The humanitarian aid includes medicine, clothes and food, as well as gifts for WWII veterans living in the Donetsk and Lugansk peoples' republics, which are being delivered for the Victory Day, celebrated on May 9 and marking the capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union.
The total weight of the aid in Russia's 25th convoy is over 1,400 metric tons. The aid is transported by 120 vehicles that will also bring firefighting equipment for the DPR and LPR firefighting and rescue crews.
