“The only thing I fear is that the movement may get bureaucratized,” Putin said at a meeting with members of the Public Chamber on Wednesday.
The volunteer movement in the country has been in demand and the authorities “will secure and support the establishment by all means,” the president said recalling the volunteers’ active work at the Winter Olympics in the Black Sea city of Sochi.
“Now they recollect that assistance is needed for the people who fled the area of civil conflict in Ukraine. Certainly, it must be done and it’s always welcome,” he said adding that “help must go from heart to heart.”
“Although support from the state is in demand but volunteer movement is always timely, since it goes from heart to heart,” Putin said.
He believes that humanitarian assistance should be provided to those who are staying in the conflict zone in Ukraine but in such a way that will rule out estrangement.
“It would be right if the Russian public saw the necessity to provide assistance to the people who are still in the area of the conflict as they need this support, too,” the president said. “Let’s think how to do it correctly and comfortably for the people, for the state, for our partners in Ukraine in order to avert estrangement but vice versa, to render help.”
