The Turkish city of Istanbul will provide Ukrainian Odessa with humanitarian aid – 10 buses and 41 generators. It is noted that citizens can charge phones and computers in the centers created by the Odessa municipality. This was reported on March 16 by the press service of the Consulate General of Ukraine in Istanbul.
“As you know, Odessa and Istanbul are sister cities. The Istanbul Municipal Council decided to transfer humanitarian aid to the Odessa City Hall – 10 buses and 41 generators,” the consulate shared.
The decision to provide assistance was the result of cooperation between the two mayor’s offices – Odessa and Istanbul – and the Consulate General. The Electric Tram and Tunnel Operations Department will help provide technical training to Ukrainians so they can drive the new buses.
In Turkey, they know that due to the full-scale invasion of Russia in Odessa, some services have become inaccessible to the citizens, and the public transport system is unusable. It is reported that thanks to the generators, Odessa residents will be able to charge their equipment and heat in the centers created by the municipality.
