MOSCOW, October 6. /TASS/. The death of an official from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in the troubled Ukrainian city of Donetsk should be investigated thoroughly, chief of the Moscow branch of the Russian Red Cross panel Igor Trunov told a news conference on Monday.
“This crime should not be left unpunished because it is a crime against humanity,” he said.
Several conventions regulating Red Cross activity in armed conflict zones were breached, Trunov noted. The killing was "an illegal act which is within the jurisdiction of an international criminal court. We believe that proper investigation should be conducted for such incidents not to recur.”
Laurent Du Pasquier, 38, died on October 2 in a shelling near his office. He arrived in Ukraine six weeks ago having worked before in Pakistan, Yemen, Haiti, Egypt and Papua New Guinea.
