    A spokesman for the ministry told the agency that U.S. authorities agreed to accept Russian help. A list of the goods that will be airlifted to the hurricane-hit areas has been made, he said.

    “Power generators, individual food rations, tents, drinking water and bandages are the basic items in the Russian humanitarian aid,” the official said.

    There is no more KGB.

    You must be thinking USSR.

    This is the Russian Federation were talking here. (Russia to you).

    The acronym for the Russian security service is "FSB".
