KIEV, August 17 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine has recognized as relief aid the International Red Cross cargo which Russia dispatched to Ukraine on August 12, the Ukrainian government said on its website.
“Ukraine’s Minister of Social Policy Lyudmila Denisova has signed a decree recognizing the ICRC cargo as relief aid,” the report said.
Ukraine’s Ministry of Social Policy received a letter enumerating the relief items on August 16. It was signed by Pascal Cuttat, the head of the regional delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross for Russia, Belarus Ukraine and Moldova.
The Ukraine-based mission of the International Committee of the Red Cross, the letter said, is to receive the relief cargo in Ukraine. The ICRC employees in Ukraine will help to move the cargo to Ukrainian territory via the Donetsk border control post.
Earlier on Saturday, the International Committee of the Red Cross dispatched a written resolution to Kiev on the results of inspection of its cargo transported by the Russian truck convoy.
The Ukrainian government said the relief cargo consisted of food, including baby food, water, medical products and power generators - a total of 12 items with a total weight of 1856.3 tonnes.
