On Friday, the MChS said that it’s forming up the twelfth humanitarian aid convoy for the Donbass, saying, “We’re putting together another convoy to take humanitarian aid to the Donbass and finalising the dates now”. Part of the convoy will originate at the Noginsk MChS centre in Moscow Oblast; other echelons will come from other parts. Earlier, Emergencies Minister Lieutenant General V A Puchkov said that the twelfth convoy would leave as soon as it’s ready. He explained that the specific content of aid cargo in each convoy originates in requests from local governments; primarily, humanitarian aid includes food, medical supplies, and items needed to ensure continuous operation of energy facilities and vital social services. The majority of the cargo in the previous eleven humanitarian convoys consisted of food and medicines. So far, since August of 2014, Russia shipped over 14,800 tons of humanitarian aid to the Donbass.
