Russia to send trucks, helicopters to Afghanistan


BEIJING, June 3 (RIA Novosti) - Russia plans to deliver Kamaz trucks and Mi-8 helicopters this summer as part of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, a Russian Emergency Situations Ministry official said on Wednesday.

"In July-August we plan to dispatch to Afghanistan 50 Kamaz trucks which will be used to deliver humanitarian aid to the country," said Yury Brazhnikov, who heads the ministry's international cooperation department.

The ministry will also send two Mi-8 helicopters fitted out with medical equipment, the official said.

Among other humanitarian aid, Afghanistan is also to receive 7,500 tons of flour.

Russia delivered some 18,000 tons of flour to the country in January-April. The flour is being delivered within the framework of UN World Food Program aid commitments.

"This humanitarian operation is unprecedented in its size compared with other operations that Russia carried out in Afghanistan," Brazhnikov said.

The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry has conducted 14 humanitarian operations abroad since the start of the year and another 16 operations are planned for 2009.
