MOSCOW, July 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's children rights commissioner said on Wednesday that his office will send some 20 tons of humanitarian aid to Ukrainian refugees in Crimea.
"We are helping Crimea because this region ranks second in the number of refugees (from Ukraine)," children's rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov said at a news conference.
Astakhov's office has earlier sent more than 43 tons of humanitarian aid to Russia’s southern Rostov region where most Ukrainian refugees keep arriving.
Crimea, previously an autonomous republic within Ukraine with a Russian ethnic majority, became part of Russia following a referendum in March.
