“We hope that no one will resume attempts to hamper the delivery of relief aid from Russia and that we will be able to start the action in the next few hours,” the Russian diplomat stressed. He also said that with hostilities still on, Russia urgently needed security guarantees from the Ukrainian side.
“Nevertheless, the efforts exerted by the Russian leadership have brought results. All technicalities have now been settled. The recent meeting in Berlin of the foreign ministers of Germany, Russia, Ukraine and France also confirmed that all technical aspects (related to the aid’s delivery) had been solved,” the Russian diplomat stressed.
Peter Maurer, the ICRC president who took part in the debates, echoed Churkin’s view.
“The only and really effective method to protect the population in this conflict is to announce an immediate and unconditional ceasefire,” the Russian diplomat stressed, adding Moscow had repeatedly been calling for the truce.
