Lebanon to receive fuel and cereal aid from Russia

Beirut, Nov 1 (Prensa Latina) Lebanese Minister of Public Works and Transport Ali Hamie confirmed that Russia will donate fuel and cereal to the country amid the worsening economic crisis.

On his Twitter account, the minister revealed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to provide aid to that nation consisting of 25,000 tons of wheat and 10,000 barrels of fuel.

In his microblogging message, Hamie stated that Russia’s Ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Rudakov, asked the said ministry for measures to anchor the appropriate ships in Lebanese ports, provided that the delivery date is within the next two days.

The Russian aid will be in addition to the Iraqi and Iranian support of fuel and oil derivatives, which aims to alleviate the hardship of the Lebanese citizens.

High prices of essential items, devaluation of the national currency, and banking collapse are currently dragging four out of five of the country’s citizens into poverty.
