Yesterday, on June 11, Belarus sent humanitarian supplies to Ukraine.

This was announced by George Tuka, the Deputy Minister for Temporary Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons, RBC-Ukraine reports.

“From my point of view, the essential difference is that there will be furniture for children and schools. I promise that all supply logistics will be at the highest level. I hope that everything will be done without delay. In the Donetsk region, the cargo must be unloaded to the Red Cross warehouse, and in the Lugansk region – directly to the school,” – Tuka said.

Igor Sokol, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus to Ukraine, told about the content of the humanitarian cargo.

“It was decided to send a humanitarian supplies convoy from Belarus to Ukraine. The humanitarian cargo included refrigerators, food and furniture. From Kharkov, the cargo will be transported to Kramatorsk and Severodonetsk. We have been delivering humanitarian goods to Ukraine more than 60 times,” – he said.

As you know, on May 2, the press service of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus reported that Belarus would send humanitarian supplies worth more than 80 thousand dollars. That list included such goods as canned meat, rapeseed oil, sugar, yeast, buckwheat, wheat flour, paste goods, school furniture sets, storage cabinets and refrigerators.
