Humanitarian mission must obey Ukrainian law — MFA




Statement of the MFA of Ukraine on the delivery of humanitarian aid to the Luhansk Oblast, August 11, 2014

Due to the complex humanitarian and social situation in the Donbas, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko took the initiative regarding the organization of an international humanitarian aid mission to the Luhansk Oblast. In addition to shipments prepared by the Ukrainian side, the mission will also include an international component, in particular humanitarian aid provided by the International Committee of Red Cross, the U.S., EU and also Russia.

Admission to Ukraine of the humanitarian shipments will be carried out according to Ukrainian legislation and international law and in compliance with the methods employed by the International Committee of the Red Cross and fully shared by Ukraine and the entire world community. The logistic support for the international humanitarian aid mission, specifically in matters of delivery and distribution, will be provided by the International Committee of the Red Cross and Ukraine. With this, it is important that the humanitarian aid be distributed exclusively among the civilian population of the Luhansk Oblast, which for a long time now has suffered from terror and the actions of illegal armed groups.

    If the Russians cannot bring in troops to secure their interests, they want to at least be seen in the eyes of locals as the ones who saved the population from the horrors of war, so Russia can keep feelings running high in Donbas and an insurgency just off the boil. Just more manipulation from Russia. They cannot even give you a crust without finding a way to twist your arm thereby. It’s disgusting.

      Yes, it’s all part of Fascist Putin’s plan to DESTABILIZE UKRAINE and try to carve it up to add to his empire. I’ll be glad to see the end of him one day.

    It is beyond belief how one weirdo, Putin, can create such chaos, disruption, wars and death to so many people during his years in power! All this is done for the glory of ambitious Putin who dreams of resurrecting the Soviet Empire, a regime that collapsed 20 years ago! It is time for Putin to put aside greed, self-inflated ego, hunger for power, and just learn how to be a positive force in the world, not the bully Russia we see now.
