MOSCOW, August 25 /ITAR-TASS/. The Moscow office of the Russian Red Cross said on Monday it was ready to delegate its workers to accompany a second aid convoy to eastern Ukraine.
“There is no rigid line of command in the Red Cross. The Moscow office is an independent entity and we are ready to delegate our representatives to the convoy and accompany it,” office Head Igor Trunov told ITAR-TASS.
He said he would discuss this issue with the head of the regional delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Russia, Belarus and Moldova, Pascal Cuttat, on August 28.
Moscow said it was preparing a second aid convoy to eastern Ukraine, and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted as saying that Russia was hoping to send a new aid convoy to eastern Ukraine this week.
The Russian Red Cross said it was ready to accompany a second aid convoy to Ukraine and had already set up five teams of volunteers and workers for that.
“The Red Cross has sent letters to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov, offering assistance in escorting the aid and helping to distribute it in the south-east of Ukraine,” the organisation’s spokesperson Tatyana Klenitskaya said.
