On the instructions of the Russian government, aircraft from the ministry of emergency situations have begun delivering humanitarian aid to Bagram air base, 20km to the Northeast of Kabul. On-board the two IL-76 aircraft were 50 tons of sugar for the Afghan population. An official statement released by the emergencies ministry said one aircraft had already landed at Bagram, and a second is expected very soon. Earlier rice and flour had been sent to Afghanistan, also on IL-76 emergencies ministry aircraft.
