Russian Emergency Ministry finishes building 60th motor convoy carrying relief goods to Donbass

The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has finished building the 60th humanitarian convoy for Donbass.

The Ministry’s convoy carrying relief goods to residents of Donetsk and Luhansk regions was formed in the Don Rescue Center.

26 trucks are loaded with more than 300 tons of humanitarian aid. The most of the cargo is food sets for babies under 1 year of age. Those include milk formulas, mashed fruit, vegetables and meat, milk porridges and fruit juices.

At the center the trucks underwent technical maintenance, got their expendables replaced and filled. Rescue drivers had additional safety and extreme driving lessons. All of them have great experience in humanitarian operations and have delivered cargos in Donetsk and Luhansk regions several times.

The convoy is ready to go and is planned to move out on 21 February.

The Emergency Ministry has provided humanitarian aid to residents of Donbass since August 2014. Over that time the Ministry successfully transported to southeastern Ukraine more than 66 thousand tons of relief goods.
