According to the report, cars carry more than 500 tons of cargo, including "children's food sets, medicines, medical equipment and children's gifts."
The column will proceed to two destinations - Luhansk and Donetsk regions of Ukraine.
As it was reported earlier 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.
The 70th ‘humanitarian convoy’ from Russia crossed the Ukrainian-Russian border and arrived in Donetsk on October 27. The Russian emergency ministry sent to Donbas 12 trucks and five support vehicles, the message said.
