A motorcade carrying humanitarian aid for residents in southeastern Ukraine left the Moscow region on Tuesday, an Interfax correspondent said.
The motorcade consists of about 100 trucks that will deliver 1,000 tonnes of aid, including food, medication, drinking water and building materials.
"We are planning on the convoy being in the Rostov region, in the village of Kovalyovka, tomorrow night. Subsequently, we will be acting in coordination with the Foreign Ministry and the Red Cross," Russian Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Stepanov told reporters.
This is Russia's fourth batch of aid for the southeastern Ukraine.
The first three delivered a total of 6,000 tonnes of food, including grains and tins, power generators, medication, warm clothing and bottled water.
