“We have accomplished the mission. Another stage of delivering humanitarian aid to Donetsk and Lyhansk regions has been successfully finished. All the goods were delivered and there were no contingencies during the operation,” said Deputy Head of the Noginsk Rescue Center Vasily Myasnikov, who headed the convoy.
He noted a high level of discipline: all the drivers who have unique experience did their job excellently and all the trucks got back in good working condition.
The convoy included rescuers/drivers, heads of convoy groups, medical personnel and technical workers who maintain the trucks on their way.
