"In the coming days, there are plans to send food supplies for civilians to Sana’a by the planes of the Emergencies Ministry. We urge all the sides to assist ensuring unhampered delivery of the Russian aid, its distribution among the affected civilians of the country," the ministry said.

The Russian side believes it is important to "make its contribution to easing the humanitarian situation in Yemen," it stressed.

Moscow welcomes the reports that the conflicting Yemeni sides have agreed to announce a humanitarian truce starting from Friday until the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on July 17.

The ministry stressed that this is a very important step towards "easing the sufferings" of the civilians in the country.
