"In particular, airplanes and motorcades carrying food are heading to Slovyansk. Bread, water, sugar, canned meats should be delivered to the city as early as today. Besides, I have ordered work to begin to repair power and water supplies to ensure normal life in the city," Poroshenko said in his Saturday address to the Ukrainian people.
