Russia Sends Aid to U.S.

Two cargo planes carrying Russian humanitarian aid for those suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy have landed in New York.

A statement on the Emergency Situations Ministry's website announced that the two Ilyushin-76 aircraft, loaded with blankets and other essentials, arrived in New York at 8:20 a.m. and 8:50 a.m. Moscow time Monday. The Emergency Situations Ministry has sent 40 tons of humanitarian aid to victims of the hurricane since it struck the U.S. East Coast two weeks ago.
