Description : As the situation in Ukraine continues to be fragile, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin agree that humanitarian aid must reach the people affected by the conflict.
Fighting in eastern Ukraine has claimed over 6,000 lives, with almost half the population in the region displaced.
ICRC President Peter Maurer today completed high-level talks in Moscow and Kiev, in which he focused on the severe humanitarian crisis in eastern Ukraine and urged the governments of both countries to ensure that vital aid reaches people in need. During a four-day visit to the region, he met with President Vladimir Putin and President Petro Poroshenko, and senior officials of both countries.
Hospitals, schools and other key infrastructure have been badly damaged and essential services disrupted. This, coupled with the existing economic crisis in the region, means that reconstruction is a daunting task. The effects of the conflict will be felt for years to come.
