Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has expressed the hope that delays in providing security guarantees are not an attempt by Kiev or other forces to disrupt the most important humanitarian operation.
In a telephone conversation with International Red Cross President Peter Maurer Lavrov recalled that “the situation in the areas of hostilities from the standpoint of providing food, water and electricity for the population is getting worse day in day out,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said afterwards. “Infrastructures are being ruined, sick people remain without medicines and children without food, and many localities lack essentials.”
Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross Peter Maurer on Tuesday said that Russia and militia in Ukraine's southeast have fully taken care of all safety aspects concerning the humanitarian aid convoy and ICRC personnel.
"Peter Maurer also noted that Russia and the militia have fully provided for all the aspects ensuring the safety of the humanitarian aid convoy and the ICRC personnel involved in the operation," they said.
Lavrov and Maurer agreed to take resolute measures within hours in order to settle the question of delivering the Russian cargo to its original destination.
