“We would like to remind the Russian side that under the international law a request from Ukraine as the host state is needed for humanitarian aid to be provided. The list of humanitarian aid items needs to be agreed with the Ukrainian authorities, and their delivery to Ukraine must be arranged via the channels of the United Nations or International Committee of the Red Cross. Besides, any delivery of humanitarian aid to the areas that are under temporary control of terrorists would be possible only if agreed by the Tripartite Contact Group with the actors on the ground. This position is fully shared by the international community and was re-confirmed at today’s meeting of the UN Security Council,” the statement reads.
The truck convoy carrying one thousand tons of humanitarian aid for the inhabitants of Novorossiya left the territory of the Moscow region on Tuesday. In composition of the convoy there are about 100 trucks, carrying food, medicines, drinking water and building materials, altogether 1 thousand tons of humanitarian aid.
The convoy is planned to have reached locality Kovalevka of the Rostov region by October 29. Then we will act in accordance with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Red Cross”, said Deputy Head of the Ministry of Emergencies of the RF Vladimir Stepanov. In his turn, State Secretary, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the RF Grigoriy Karasin told the TASS that a note was forwarded to the MFAU, informing the state body about the departure of the convoy.
The first three convoys with humanitarian aid for Donbass delivered the total of 6 tons of cargo to Lugansk, consisting of food products, including cereals and tinned food, as well as power generators, medicines, warm clothes and bottled water.
