“The food was distributed among the people in need. A list with their names was provided by the senior priest of the Church of Saint Andrew the Apostle,” Vladimirov said.
Up to 500 local residents received packages with individual food rations, canned fish and meat, flour, pasta and cereals. Children were also given waffles, pastries and sweets. Military doctors also deployed a mobile first-aid post and extended medical care to all those needing it.
Along with Christians, humanitarian aid was also provided to around 100 Muslims, Vladimirov said.
