The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry plans to deliver the next batch of humanitarian supplies to the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics by November 30.

"Another batch of humanitarian aid is already being prepared. It is already being loaded onto trucks. According to our plans, this [humanitarian aid] convoy will arrive in the Rostov region on Friday evening," Russian Deputy Emergency Situations Minister Vladimir Stepanov said.

This cargo will primarily include construction materials such as slate, glass and roofing felt, food, as well as "fuel for the emergency services" - firefighters and ambulances, Stepanov said.

"We plan to send more than 100 trucks carrying over 1,000 tonnes of supplies," the deputy minister said.

Half of the trucks will deliver aid to Lugansk, and the other half to Donetsk, he added.

It will be Russia's eighth humanitarian aid convoy for southeastern Ukraine since August.
