Description : The ICRC is asking for more information about the aid convoy, which left Moscow for eastern Ukraine this morning.
According to the Russian authorities, 280 trucks is bound for the region and is due to arrive at an agreed point on the border with Ukraine tonight.
Laurent Corbaz, ICRC Head of Operations for Europe and Central Asia says the organisation still needed security guarantees and direct contact with all the parties.
He added that the issue is not yet settled as the organisation needed to know precisely the size and contents of the convoy.
He described the situation in eastern Ukraine as “dire”, with many cities without adequate access to medical supplies, water and electricity.
The ICRC is stepping up its activities for affected populations, prioritising assistance to the displaced and those resident in the city of Donbass as well as medical services to the wounded.
