All Trucks With Russian Humanitarian Aid for Donbas Return to Rostov Region: Deputy Head

MOSCOW, November 2 (RIA Novosti) - All the Russian trucks that delivered humanitarian aid to Donbas have returned to Russia's Rostov region, Oleg Voronov, deputy head of the national center in crisis situations from the Russian Emergencies Ministry, said Sunday.

"Another cycle of operations connected with humanitarian aid deliveries to Donetsk and Luhansk has been completed. All the trucks of the Noginsky Rescue Center have returned to [Russia's] Rostov region empty," Voronov told reporters.

In April, Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation in the country's southeast, where independence supporters refused to accept the new government that was put in power following a coup in February.

The military actions brought about a severe humanitarian crisis in Donbas. The local residents were left without food, drinking water and electricity since the infrastructure was systematically destroyed in the ongoing fighting between the pro-Kiev forces and militias.

Russia has been sending aid convoys to Donbas since August. They have delivered food, water, power generators, medication and warm clothes to help the residents of Donetsk and Luhansk regions replenish their stocks ahead of the coming winter.
