Russia's Ministry of Emergency Situations is going to half the number of the so-called "humanitarian convoys" it sends to the occupied Donbas.

Censor.NET reports citing RIA Novosti.

"Starting from April, there will be only one convoy per month, not two as usual," said Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation Vladimir Artamonov.

According to him, this is due to "the satisfaction of the needs in Ukraine's southeast. Basically, these are food products and medications."

The occupiers are planning to send two more "humanitarian convoys" on March 16 and 23.

As previously reported, Putin's 61st convoy arrived in the Donbas on Feb. 28.
