“Necessary goods and medications are being collected very actively,” the head of the working group for humanitarian aid to Ukraine’s south-east, Maxim Grigoryev said on Wednesday.
Over 500 people have agreed to provide support to peaceful civilians, he said.
These are commercial structures, producing medications and foodstuffs, Grigoryev said.
In March the Public Chamber set up the headquarters for humanitarian, legal and psychological assistance to Ukrainian citizens, affected by the consequences of the conflict. The headquarters maintains contacts with the Federal Migration Service and the Russian Foreign Ministry.
One can request assistance on the website www.sos.oprf.ru and by telephone from Russia 8-800-700-8-800 or from Ukraine 0-800-217-008.
