The Republic of Belarus has sent 58 tons of humanitarian aid to Ukraine for Ukrainian citizens who are on both sides of demarcation line in the east of the country.

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus to Ukraine Igor Sokol said this at a press conference on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Heads of States Alexander Lukashenko and Petro Poroshenko agreed on today's event on April 26, when the meeting was held first in Chornobyl and then in the Belarusian territory. It is very important for the head of the Belarusian state that the humanitarian aid will be delivered to both sides of the conflict with the assistance of the Ministry for Temporary Occupied Territories and the Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross, because the head of our state believes that the most vulnerable categories in the conflict are people of advanced age and children. Therefore, the principled position was that humanitarian assistance could be sent to both sides of the conflict," Sokol said.

The ambassador said that in total, four trucks with a total weight of 58 tons of cargo left for Ukraine.
