On 24 May 2016 on the territory of Donbass stopped a convoy of humanitarian convoy from Russian Federation. This convoy is the fiftieth in a row, therefore it was called the jubilee.
Employees of the Ministry of emergency situations of the Russian Federation said that the trucks with humanitarian aid passed a mandatory customs inspection when crossing international checkpoints. The inspection procedure was carried out by the employees of border and customs services.
At the moment, the convoy has already reached the warehouse and is in the process of unloading. Unloading is carried out in the presence of representatives of local authorities. Received humanitarian assistance, they will be distributed according to the objects of social values, which are on the territory of Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
As told the Russian side, the column consists of ninety cars. They carry more than a hundred thousand tons of food, which include cereal, canned goods, flour and sugar, cereals and pasta, juices and purees, as well as artistic and educational literature. Humanitarian aid also includes vegetable seeds and flower crops.
When unloading has been completed, all trucks will go back to the Rostov region.
