MOSCOW, December 17 /TASS/. Russia has transferred $1 million to the International Committee of the Red Cross to help the conflict-hit civilian population in south-east Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on its website on Wednesday.
“Russia is using every opportunity to help civilian persons in the conflict area and is urging international humanitarian organizations to join efforts to alleviate the plight of those people,” the Russian Foreign Ministry press and information department said in its statement.
Russia is also calling on Ukraine’s leadership to give up its policy of economic blockade of the (Donbas) region and start cooperation with all parties interested in helping the civilian population.
