UNITED NATIONS, August 06. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Federation hopes that the UN and other international organizations will prevail on Kiev to accept the proposal about sending Russia's humanitarian aid to Ukraine, Vitaly Churkin, Permanent Representative of the RF at the UN, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday at the close of the emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.
During the meeting, the diplomat suggested that convoys with Russian humanitarian aid supplies be sent, accompanied by officials of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), to Donetsk and Lugansk, as well as to Ukraine's other cities which have a large number of forced migrants. Churkin said appropriate official messages had been sent directly to the ICRC, as well as to the UN, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, and the Council of Europe.
"With the assistance of international organizations and humanitarian agencies, we seek to convince Kiev that it is essential to render aid to its own people. Herein is our proposal the point is not to pass some resolution or make do something and so on but secure that they still explain it to the Ukrainian side that Russia wants to help and that Russian humanitarian aid can be used with the assistance of international organizations," Churkin said.
He expressed regret that at the present moment Kiev is is not disposed for joint humanitarian work." "They do not want to cooperate, interact with us with the mediation of international organizations," the diplomat said.
