The Russian government decided to make a charitable contribution of $11m to the World Food Program (WFP) fund in order to provide humanitarian aid for indigent countries on terms stipulated in the corresponding memorandum made by the Russian government and the WFP, the Russian Foreign Ministry's information and press department reported.
