MOSCOW, May 10. /TASS/. Russia has delivered 18,790.1 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Ukraine since March 2, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, the chief of Russia’s National Defense Management Center, said on Tuesday.
"Since March 2, the Russian Federation has already delivered 18,790.1 tonnes of daily essentials, foodstuffs, medicines and medical products and carried out 990 humanitarian actions. Of those, one took place in the past 24 hours in Kharkov region, where 12.5 tonnes of humanitarian aid was handed out to civilians," said Mizintsev, who heads the Russian Joint Coordination Headquarters for Humanitarian Response in Ukraine.
Ukrainian troops have opened fire on six civilian cars with white flags installed on them, Mizintsev said.
"According to reliable intelligence available, the Kiev regime carried out another bloody action in the Kharkov region, following the Bucha scenario. On the road connecting the settlements of Stary [Saltov] and Novy Saltov, six civilian vehicles with white flags mounted on them were shelled by soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces," said Mizintsev, who heads the Russian Joint Coordination Headquarters for Humanitarian Response in Ukraine.
The general pointed out that photo and video footage of this heinous crime was taken by specialists of the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ center for information and psychological operations.
In addition, according to Mizintsev, from the area of private houses in Belaya Krinitsa, Kherson region, the Ukrainian artillery opened fire on Russian positions "to trigger return fire on residential buildings with civilians, whom the territorial defense fighters are not letting out of the encircled populated locality, holding them as human shields."
The general pointed out that Norwegian reporters were in Belaya Krinitsa to film the allegedly indiscriminate Russian strikes on civilians.
"We warn in advance that these and other materials, which are fabricated by the Kiev regime, about the alleged ‘Russian’s atrocities’ are to be widely covered in the Western and Ukrainian media as well as Internet resources in the near future," Mizintsev added.
