Tuesday, Novemberv1, two cars with humanitarian aid departed from Vinnitsa to the front line. Activists told what they are transporting to the soldiers and specified two things that are always popular with them: letters from schoolchildren and herring. 

Volunteer Andriy Nechiporuk told us that despite the price hike Vinnitsa residents continue to hand over humanitarian aid to ATO area. However, he added that in 2014 the car could be loaded for twenty-four hours, but now it takes 3 or 4 days.

“We are transporting humanitarian aid from an industrial zone - to Aydar battalion, stationed near Dokuchaivsk. We will stop by at Pesky, Mariinka, Krasnohorivka, Butovka mine, Opytne and Zenitne,” said Andriy Nechiporuk. “Now we have a lot of tinned food, biscuits, handmade marinated meet and bacon, medicines, and the most popular – herring and salted sprats – two buckets per each sub-unit, as the soldiers like them very much. We are also delivering a lot of sealed food jars that were provided by the students within the "Koncervativnaya Vinnitsa" campaign. 

The volunteers stressed the shortage in medicines and warm cloths. In wintertime, the soldiers especially need vitamins and anti-influenza agents.

Vinnitsa Mayor Sergiy Morgunov thanked the city residents for their personal involvement:

“I would like to express my gratitude to Vinnitsa residents, who continue to help the defenders of Ukraine. We are pleased that the children of our city are involved in this campaign as well sending letters and patriotic drawings thereby supporting the fighting spirit of our soldiers.
