Russia sent its 76th so-called ‘humanitarian convoy’ to the occupied by the militants Donbas. This was reported by the press service of the Emergency Ministry of the Russian Federation.

“There are over 40 vehicles that will bring the residents of Donbas more than 400 tons of humanitarian cargo, including children food kits, study materials and medical equipment,” the message says.

As it was reported earlier, Russian Federation sent the cars with the so-called 75th "humanitarian aid" to the occupied territory of Donbas on March 29.

According to Russian Emergency Ministry, the cars of the 75th humanitarian column of the Russian Emergency Service were sent to the Russian-Ukrainian border where it divided into two parts, each of which after crossing the checkpoints proceeded to the destinations - one will go to Donetsk, the other - to Luhansk.

Russian authorities have been sending the so-called humanitarian convoys to Ukraine since August 2014. The Russian side claims the trucks carry food, water, medicines, books, agrarian instruments and other necessities. Ukrainian border guards cannot check the contents of trucks, and Russia refused to send their humanitarian aid through the controlled checkpoints on the border, as requested by Ukraine. Ukraine insists there are weapons and ammunition aboard the trucks, so they reach Kremlin-backed militants that keep on attacking Ukrainian positions.
