The convoy will deliver over 400 tonnes of aid to Luhansk, and over 800 tonnes to Donetsk, he said.

This is the eighth convoy with humanitarian aid for Donbass. “We were assembling it for several days, receiving trucks from the Rostov, Voronezh, Tula, Ivanovo and Moscow regions. From the emergency situations ministry’s rescue centre in Noginsk (near Moscow) we received about 60 trucks,” the ministry’s representative said.
