The country has been hit by a typhoon just days before a regional summit to be attended by Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump

(Sputnik) – “At 08:16 p.m. Moscow time [17:16 GMT] an Il-76 aircraft of the Russian Emergencies Ministry landed in the airport of the city of Cam Ranh. On board of the plane are 40 tonnes of humanitarian aid for the people of Vietnam that were affected by the typhoon,” the press service said.

The aid includes large tents and food, namely sugar, preserved milk products, as well as canned meat and fish, the ministry added.
