The international Committee of the red cross is negotiating on both sides of the contact line on the expansion of its mission in the Donbas. This was announced by the President of the ICRC Peter Maurer during a visit to Donetsk on Wednesday, March 8.

“This is my fourth visit here also to discuss with the local authorities in Lugansk, Donetsk, and Kyiv to expand our operation in Ukraine”, – he said.

He noted that the humanitarian situation in the Donbass again very difficult.

“We are again seeing the conflict in the last couple of weeks. A lot of people moved, many people lost their jobs, life and a roof over my head. The economy is suffering and human life are suffering and it is very important that we can expand its humanitarian operation in the Donbass on both sides of the demarcation line,” said Maurer.
