The 189th humanitarian aid convoy of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM) has delivered 59 tons of foodstuffs and essential supplies to Lugansk, the Lugansk People’s Republic Emergencies Ministry press service reported.
“On Saturday, August 10, a new EMERCOM convoy delivered relief supplies for Donbass residents to the LPR capital,” the Ministry said. “Five EMERCOM trucks brought 65 tons of food products to Lugansk warehouses.”
On August 19, EMERCOM’s 188th convoy delivered food and construction materials.
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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn from the contact line under the accords.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
