MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. Russia called on the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to continue highlighting humanitarian consequences from the Ukrainian crisis, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Saturday following the 65th session of the UNHCR Executive Committee in Geneva recently.
“The member countries were informed about the efforts of the Russian authorities in offering support to the Ukrainian refugees in the territory of this country, and in providing international protection to them,” the ministry’s statement reads. “The only effective way to settle the problem of Ukrainian refugees and internally displaced persons could be ceasefire and a political settlement of the crisis in that country.”
“The Russian Federation has confirmed it is ready to continue productive cooperation with UNHCR, including in financial support,” the statement reads.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Mr Antonio Guterres expressed concern about many internally displaced persons in Ukraine, who now should be offered good living conditions. He spoke in favour of Russia’s efforts in receiving hundreds of thousands Ukrainian refugees, who had crossed the border with the Russian Federation, the foreign authority said.
