“Both administration chiefs stressed it was impossible to stage provocations against the Russian convoy,” Putin’s spokesperson said, adding Ivanov and Lozhkin had agreed the relief aid should reach the recipients as soon as possible.
Sergei Ivanov, in turn, said that the Russian Foreign Ministry had set forth the Russian side’s arguments and explanations (on the convoy’s movement) in its recently published statement. The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday that Russia had decided that the aid convoy should start moving towards Luuansk.
“Naturally, the ICRC employees are ready to accompany the convoy and participate in the distribution of the relief aid. We hope that representatives of the Russian Red Cross will also be able to take part in this action,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
