The second humanitarian aid convoy with a volume of 100 tons was shipped
today from Kazan to Lisichansk. Deputies of the City Duma and their enterprises
made a significant contribution to the collection of the cargo. They provided
goods worth more than 7 million rubles. Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan, took
part in shipping humanitarian aid from the City Hall. He said that the next
cargo is planned to be shipped in early December.
Two hundred enterprises, including pharmaceutical and trading companies,
schools, property management companies and the association of transport
industry enterprises, as well as more than 600 citizens of Kazan joined the
collection of a new batch of goods. About 30 tons of food and 70 tons of
non-food products were loaded into five trucks. Residents of Lisichansk will
receive canned food, baby food, groceries, drinking water and sweets, as well
as warm clothes, equipment, household chemicals – such as toothpastes and
washing gel, medicines, building materials, 150 generators and 16 mobile ovens.
“We are in direct contact with colleagues, find out their needs and send
all the necessary goods. At the request of the residents of Lisichansk, who
support the life support of the municipal economy, generators and mobile stoves
were purchased, they were also loaded into trucks,”- I. Metshin said. He
thanked the citizens and entrepreneurs who actively participate in the
collection of humanitarian aid: “We have no problems with collecting. More and
more residents are getting involved in this activity.”
After the 18th session of the City Duma, its deputies
accompanied the Mayor in shipping the humanitarian convoy from the City Hall.
During the meeting, deputies watched a video showing the current state of
Lisichansk and how much it needs to be restored. “Words are empty to understand
the significance of the support that we provide to Lisichansk and its
residents. I thank the deputies and colleagues who participate in the
collection of humanitarian aid. Everyone joined in a single impulse, regardless
of parties and factions. We are in touch with colleagues, so we will be
together in this important work,”- Ilsur Metshin said and urged concerned
residents to help those in need.
According to the deputy head of the Executive Committee of Kazan, Ildar
Shakirov, convoy is shipped to the city supported by Tatarstan once every two
weeks. In less than a month, 17 collection points for humanitarian aid have
been operating, 200 tons of food, household chemicals, and building materials
have been collected.
