KIEV, August 15, /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian humanitarian supplies for the residents of south-eastern Ukraine must be delivered to their destination by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Ukraine's Foreign Ministry stated.
The Ministry statement, published on the night from Thursday to Friday points out that border and customs control, as well as registration of humanitarian aid must be carried out by "authorized bodies of Ukraine with the assistance of and monitoring by the ICRC and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe".
"An understanding was reached that all humanitarian supplies, including Russian humanitarian aid, would be delivered to destination exclusively by the ICRC. The Committee will also see to it that all logistical aspects connected with the keeping and distribution of aid are observed," the Ministry pointed out.
Last Tuesday Russia had sent out a motor convoy carrying humanitarian aid supplies intended for Ukraine's south-eastern regions. The convoy consists of 262 trucks which carry about 2,000 tonnes of food, medicines, and household goods. The convoy currently proceeds on its way in Russia's territory.
