"We think the Council of Europe's Secretary General, Thorbjorn Jagland, took a timely decision on August 19 as he sent out appeals to the foreign ministers of the Council's member-states and called their attention to the humanitarian situation, which is worsening in the wake of the dragged-out conflict in the Eastern regions of Ukraine," a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.
"In Jagland's opinion, the situation cannot be characterized in any other terms than a dramatic one and prone for a further aggravation," he said.
“We consider Thornbjorn Jagland’s position as a confirmation of the importance of immediate steps to avert a humanitarian disaster in the region and as support for the efforts undertaken by Moscow to deliver relief supplies to Donetsk and Luhansk,” he said.
