The assistance is being provided at Iran’s request. “The humanitarian cargo is handed over by the Russian-Armenian Humanitarian Response Center to the Iranian Red Crescent Society,” the ministry said. The aid is delivered by trucks.
The humanitarian cargo includes over 4,000 tents, blankets and folding beds purchased at the expense of Russia.
The center was set up with the assistance of the Russian government in 2015 to facilitate the execution of emergency humanitarian response tasks in Russia, Armenia and third countries.
