The second batch of humanitarian aid for Ukraine is expected to be shipped from Cyprus on Tuesday, April 5, 2022, via the EU Civil Protection Agency, Commissioner for the Citizen Panayiotis Sentonas has said.
In a written statement on Wednesday, Sentonas says that the second shipment includes medicines and medical supplies, shelter equipment, such as sleeping bags and blankets, personal hygiene items and food.
