MOSCOW, August 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia gives more intensive aid to Ukrainian refugees fleeing to the country every day, Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Stepanov said.
“The current top task is to give aid to Ukrainian citizens in Russia, deliver them to temporary centres and to provide medical, psychological aid and meals to them,” he said. Stepanov noted that emergencies services do this work every day with federal authorities. “This lasts for more than six months and becomes more intensive every day. This is the most topical issue today,” the deputy minister said.
World Day of Humanitarian Aid is marked on Tuesday. The United Nations Organization has instituted this date in 2008. “Russia leads in giving humanitarian aid throughout the world,” Stepanov said. The Russian Emergencies Ministry is cooperating with many international organizations, including the United Nations, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Food Program, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
“Cooperation is being conducted daily, almost around the clock and depending from risks and situations which are taking place, contacts with these organizations are becoming stronger,” Stepanov noted.
