NOVOSIBIRSK, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Novosibirsk region will offer all possible, including financial, assistance to the Russian nationals in Crimea and Ukraine, the region’s head Vasiliy Yurchenko said.
“Sure, the Novosibirsk region is ready and will offer an overwhelming, including financial, assistance,” he said adding many Russian nationals live in Ukraine - including those serving at the Black Sea Fleet and their families. “No doubt, we shall not leave our people in distress.”
All Russians in Ukraine “who suffer from the nationalistic moods there” may hope for assistance, he said.
“I would like to suggest the Russian foreign ministry organised a special fund /to collect money from the Russian regions/, so that later on they could distribute the means,” Yurchenko said.
He added that on Monday, March 3, he will address state and municipal officials in the Novosibirsk region to collect money. Yurchenko stressed that at the Far East was hit by the flood, the state and municipal officials collected from their private assets about 40 million roubles to support the people in the region.
