“I would refrain from speaking about political matters, but no humanitarian corridors have yet been provided. People are fleeing on their own, roads are coming under gunfire. It looks like there are simply being squeezed out of the country, mostly to Russia,” he said at a meeting with volunteers and representatives of charity organizations helping Ukrainian refugees.
The Kremlin administration chief Sergei Ivanov arrived on Thursday in Russia’s southern Rostov region to inspect the situation with refugees coming from conflict-gripped southeastern regions of Ukraine.
According to the Rostov region administration, about 9,000 Ukrainian refugees have by now arrived in the region and their numbers are further growing. The region has practically exhausted its possibilities to provide accommodations and care to these people. The authorities have begun to arrange tent camps for refugees.
Sergei Ivanov has voiced surprise over the world’s indifference about the humanitarian disaster in south-eastern Ukraine.
“The situation in the southeast of Ukraine is dramatic, to put it mildly. In fact it is a real humanitarian disaster,” Ivanov said.
“One cannot but feel surprise why only one country in the world Russia is paying attention to this problem,” Ivanov said, adding that various UN organizations addressing the problems of refugees kept mum and pretended nothing was happening.
During the trip to the Rostov region, Ivanov plans to visit two children’s holidaying centres that are now used to accommodate refugees from Ukraine. He will also hold a government meeting on assistance to Ukrainians who found shelter in Russia.
