Three Russian Emergencies Ministry aircraft with 130 tons of humanitarian aid landed in Bishkek on Wednesday.

The planes left Moscow at midday, carrying blankets, canned food and sugar.

At least 187 people died and more than 1,900 were injured in clashes between ethnic Kyrgyz and Uzbek groups in southern Kyrgyzstan. The unrest broke out in the city of Osh on June 11 and then spread to the neighboring Jalalabad region.

The United States on Wednesday said it had decided to allocate Kyrgyzstan $10.3 million in assistance as ethnic violence continues in the Central Asian state. Later, the European commission decided to provide emergency assistance of 5 million euros to aid those affected.
