The Russian Red Cross collects money “to support” the families of Russian soldiers, as it is evidenced by the information on the organization’s website.
The head of the Red Cross in the Russian Federation, Pavlo Samchuk, claims that the Russian military “faces a number of difficulties,” and their families “feel anxious” and “need financial and humanitarian assistance.”
Russians are also offered psychological health support. According to Samchuk, the Russian Red Cross will work with the families of Russian mobilized “on an individual basis”.
“For those who need it, humanitarian kits will also be formed. Already now people can receive psychosocial support from specialists of the Russian Red Cross,” the head of the Russian Red Cross declared. He adds that the needs of “disturbed” and mobilized Russians are currently being clarified, as well as the contents of “humanitarian kits”.
The International Committee of the Red Cross and the Red Cross Society in Ukraine have no connection with the Russian Red Cross.
