Ukraine dam breach: Hull4Ukraine charity to send aid to region
By Kevin Shoesmith
A lorry carrying aid for survivors of a dam breach in southern Ukraine will set off from Hull next week.
Both Ukraine and Russia blame each other for sabotaging the Kakhovka dam in the Kherson region on Tuesday.
So far, 13 people are known to have died, according to Ukrainian and Russian-installed officials.
Ana McBride, from the charity Hull4Ukraine, said a lorry would leave East Yorkshire on 19 June for Ladom in Poland.
From there, a fleet of smaller trucks will take aid - expected to fill 33 pallets - to some of the regions worst-affected by the breach.
