Ukraine's conflict-hit eastern region of Donbas has received 273 tons of humanitarian aid from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Ukraine State Border service said Thursday.

A total of 14 trucks have delivered relief supplies to people living in Donbas, which falls beyond the government's control, the agency said in a statement on its website, adding that the aid included food sets, hygienic kits and office materials.

This year, the ICRC plans to allocate a total of 60 million U.S. dollars to help civilians in eastern Ukraine, who have been affected by the conflict between the government troops and pro-independence insurgents.

The United Nations has estimated that the confrontation, which started in April 2014, left some 3.8 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.
