US ambassador thanks Russia for Sandy relief aid

US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul has thanked Moscow for the relief aid it is planning to send to storm-hit New York.

“Thank you for help, Russia,” he tweeted on Monday.

Russia’s emergency agency is preparing to fly two planes loaded with humanitarian aid to New York, devastated by hurricane Sandy. Two Il-76 jets will each carry 27 tones of blankets and essentials.
