Belarus sent humanitarian help to Ukrainians hit by the conflict in Donbas.
The decision was taken on May, 5. Whe meeting with Ukraine’s Petro Poroshenko, Belarusian president Alyaksandr Lukashenka announced his intention to give a helping hand to Ukrainians.
The relief supplies included soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, toothpaste, oil, sugar, yeast worth of $63,000.
Tigran Keosayan, a Russian film director and host at the NTV channel, made a joke on the subject.
“Viewing Eurovision in Ukraine, Belarus was so touched that it decided to send toilet paper to Ukraine. Let us, first of all, congratulate Belarus: they have finally found the country which is poorer than them. 8,000 rolls of toilet paper! Even Belarusians realize that Ukraine is in a fine a*s. But they have not yet realized that 8,000 is not enough for the Ukrainian a*s.”
