The unloading of the humanitarian aid from the German government continues on a 24-hour basis, according to the State Service for Emergency Situations.
"The unloading of the humanitarian aid from the German government at the logistic center near Kyiv has continued round the clock starting from October 7. Last night we already unloaded 30 vans. Ten more trucks were unloaded overnight. By the morning of October 9, we had managed to unload as many as 40 trucks of aid," Emergencies Minister Serhiy Bochkovsky was quoted as saying on Thursday.
The aid, which has already been offloaded, includes warm clothes for temporarily displaced persons, household appliances (fridges, washing machines), medical equipment, beds, and other essential items, the minister said.
"Currently, all 112 trucks are already at the logistic center. Once they are fully unloaded, we will decide on their further distribution and delivery to the point of destination," Bochkovsky said.
The 112 trucks carrying the German government's aid crossed the Ukrainian-Polish border in the morning of October 7, the state agency recalled.
The aid is being provided in accordance with agreements between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko. On October 8 the aid trucks arrived at the logistic center near Kyiv.
