The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) sent the 38th convoy with humanitarian aid to Donbass, the EMERCOM press service told Interfax.

“The convoy left the Don Rescue Center in the Rostov region at 04:00 am (Moscow time) to proceed to the state border. It will be divided into two equal parts, one of which will go to Donetsk, the other one – to Luhansk,” the spokesperson informed.

More than 100 vehicles are carrying food, including canned goods, flour, cereals, tea, as well as study materials.

It’s the Russian EMERCOM’s 38th humanitarian aid convoy to Donbass. Since mid-August, 2014, more than 45,000 tons of humanitarian cargos have been delivered to Donetsk and Luhansk.
