GENEVA, January 20. /TASS/. The conflicting parties in Ukraine should comply with humanitarian law, the International Committee of the Red Cross spokeswoman Anastasia Isyuk said on Tuesday.
“We’re very worried about the escalation of violence in and around Donetsk,” she said.
The Red Cross told the parties that scattered attacks, which can be targeted at civilian facilities, are banned by international humanitarian law, Isyuk said.
At present, ICRC representatives are in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine. They intend to continue providing aid to the population.
Isyuk pointed to the difficult situation in which residents of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions found themselves. Residents did not receive social payments suspended by the authorities in Kiev. The ICRC is preparing plans to distribute food, hygiene items and medical supplies, she said.
