Kyiv guarantees security of humanitarian convoy, if it formed by ICRC
Ukraine will ensure security of a humanitarian convoy if it is formed by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko said.
"Ukraine will ensure security for the column with humanitarian cargo passing to its destination," Lysenko said at a briefing on Wednesday.
The ICRC deals with accepting humanitarian cargo and delivering it to troubled regions, Lysenko said. According to the spokesman, the ICRC should make sure that cargo poses no threat and that it can be delivered.
"As a rule, cargo sent to transit area is checked by the ICRC there and then columns are formed, which deliver cargo to sites," Lysenko said.
The National Security and Defense Council currently has no information about the location of the Russian column with humanitarian cargo.
