A milestone 200th humanitarian aid convoy of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM) has delivered food to Lugansk on October 2, the LPR Ministry of Emergencies said.
"On October 2, a new EMERCOM convoy delivered relief supplies for Donbass residents to the LPR capital,” the press service said. “Sixteen EMERCOM trucks brought sugar, vegetable oil and flour."
On September 28, 2022, EMERCOM’s 199th convoy delivered 15 tons of foodstuffs to Lugansk.
Russia first sent relief supplies to the LPR on August 22, 2014. Over eight years, it has sent more than 150,000 tons of humanitarian aid to the Donbass Republics.
The 100th humanitarian convoy arrived in the LPR on November 26, 2020.
The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014. The peace talks that began soon thereafter failed to reach tangible results due to Kiev’s position to settle the conflict by force. *t
