EMERCOM convoy delivers 100 tons of supplies to Lugansk


The 191st humanitarian aid convoy of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM) has delivered 100 tons of supplies to Lugansk, the Lugansk People’s Republic Emergencies Ministry press service reported.

“On Friday, August 26, a new EMERCOM convoy delivered relief supplies for Donbass residents to the LPR capital,” the Ministry said. “Ten EMERCOM trucks and an accompanying vehicle brought 50 tons of drinking water, 20 tons of grains, 20 tons of electrical equipment and 10 tons of museum exhibits to Lugansk warehouses.”

On August 26, EMERCOM’s 190th convoy delivered food and school books.

Russia first sent relief supplies to the LPR on August 22, 2014.

The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014.  The Donbass peace talks participants have announced ceasefire more than 20 times since the autumn of 2014. Kiev forces regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn from the contact line under the accords. *t
