“These negotiations [with the Ukrainian Red Cross Society - ITAR-TASS] look rather strange and are rather difficult. Judging by telephone talks, they seem to have a vague idea of how to behave, since there is a split inside the power structures in the country,” he told a news conference.
“We are doing our utmost to systematize this work, we are trying to get in touch with the Luhansk and Donetsk Red Cross Societies,” he said, adding that the lack of cellular communication made the negotiating process ever more difficult.
Meanwhile, Trunov said that the second humanitarian convoy to eastern Ukraine was not going to be the last one. “We plan to establish a system of relief aid. It has been generally recognized that eastern Ukraine is facing a humanitarian catastrophe which cannot be eased by one or two convoys,” he said.
Trunov also said that the Russian Red Cross Society had formed a group for accompanying humanitarian convoys and work with suffering population in Ukraine’s southeastern regions.
He pledged that the next humanitarian aid would be arranged with maximum account of requirements and needs of people staying in the conflict zone.
