The United Nations, the International Organization for Migration and the ICRC have confirmed concerns in connection with grave humanitarian effects from Kiev’s military operation in the southeast of Ukraine and expressed readiness to join discussion on the deployment of a humanitarian mission — Russian Foreign Ministry.
“In contacts of the Russian side with the UN leadership, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Organization for Migration and the International Committee of the Red Cross, our partners confirmed that they shared concerns about grave humanitarian effects from Kiev’s military operation in the southeast of Ukraine, and on the whole welcomed our initiatives and expressed readiness to join discussion on the deployment of a humanitarian mission,” the ministry said.
“We consider this position, when the Kiev authorities dodge cooperation in meeting humanitarian needs of the population affected by the conflict, as absolutely irresponsible,” the ministry went on.
“The Russian side believes it is necessary to mobilize the international community towards immediate assistance to the residents of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, where the situation is on the brink of humanitarian disaster, and with this in view it will be insistently advancing the initiative on a humanitarian mission for that Ukrainian region,” the ministry said.
