“The two ministers discussed the development of the situation in Ukraine,” the Russian foreign ministry said. “Special attention was focused on further deterioration of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine’s southeastern regions, which is fraught with catastrophic consequences to civilian population of these regions.”
“In this context, Lavrov stressed the necessity of urgent delivery of humanitarian aid to the conflict zone,” the ministry said. “It was noted that the Russian side in cooperation with the Ukrainian side and representatives from the International Committee of the Red Cross has already formed and sent a humanitarian convoy to Ukraine, which should enjoy quick and safe access to affected regions.
“The Russian minister called on Steinmeier to use all possibilities to help carry out this humanitarian action in line with the existing agreements and not let them be wrecked,” the Russian foreign ministry said.
The conversation was initiated by the German side.
