MOSCOW, November 25 /TASS/. The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations will help the International Red Cross implement social projects in southeast Ukraine, Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov said at a working meeting with Red Cross President Peter Maurer.
Maurer said that the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) had faced serious problems in carrying out social projects in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
Puchkov, in turn, promised to furnish assistance on this matter.
"All our joint projects will continue to develop. We will certainly be able to render all the necessary assistance to the ICRC in carrying out all humanitarian projects in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions," Puchkov said.
Puchkov and Maurer agreed to establish regular contacts between the two agencies and maintain recurring information exchanges on how to carry out concrete activities in Donbass.
"I support your proposal to develop a dialogue on these issues," the minister stated at a working meeting with Maurer on Friday.
The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has sent 58 humanitarian aid convoys to southeast Ukraine since August 2014. "We will go ahead with our efforts. We believe that the interaction between the Russian Emergencies Ministry and the International Red Cross in the said sphere will be useful," Puchkov stressed.
