"At 15:30 Moscow Time [11:30 GMT], an Il-76 aircraft loaded with humanitarian aid departed from the Ramenskoye airfield in the Moscow Region for Simferopol," Drobyshevsky told Itar-Tass, adding that a total of about 10 tons of food and medical supplies are on board the plane. "Since mid-March, over 2,000 tons of humanitarian cargo was delivered to Crimea," he added.
