Russian Reserves Agency provides humanitarian aid to Donbass enterprises

The Federal Agency for State Reserves (Rosrezerv) of Russia provides humanitarian aid to Donbass enterprises.

"Rosrezerv provides humanitarian aid to Donbass enterprises with the use of reserves," the head of the agency Dmitry Gogin told TASS News Agency.

"Feedstock for Donets and Lugansk regions' enterprises, which halted operations due to Kiev-imposed economic and transport blockade, is temporarily supplied as humanitarian aid from the federal inventory reserves," said the chairman of the inter-ministerial committee for humanitarian aid to Donbass affected areas Sergey Nazarov.

Nazarov said Russia was forced to adopt such measures. "The reconstruction of economic ties with Ukraine in accordance with the Minsk Agreements will allow canceling the external management with restoration of owners' rights at the enterprises."

"As for the reports of some media sources on iron ore supplies to Donbass from Russian enterprises, such supplies are nonexistent."
