Lavrov says the West is politicizing humanitarian issues in Ukraine

Lavrov says the West is politicizing humanitarian issues in Ukraine

Today, the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, said that, unfortunately, attempts by Western countries to politicize and even speculate on humanitarian issues in Ukraine do not stop.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, during his meeting today, Monday in Moscow, with the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs of the United Nations, Martin Griffiths, stressed the importance of his visit to the continuation of the activities of the international organization in this field.

“Of course, today the situation in and around Ukraine is the focus of attention of the international community,” the senior official said, referring to Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine.

He explained that Moscow has long established contacts with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, stressing that such interaction helps to solve the humanitarian problems faced by people not only in eastern Ukraine, but also in other places.

Noting that all people in difficult situations should receive humanitarian aid, he said that his country is implementing this assistance more effectively for the self-proclaimed People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.

“We are also cooperating with our international partners, including the United Nations, as well as the International Committee of the Red Cross, to organize humanitarian convoys to cities such as Sumy, Kharkiv and Mariupol,” Lavrov said, referring to cities in Ukraine that are in the middle of the fighting.

“Another counterfeit attack took place in the city of Bucha in the Kyiv region after Russian soldiers had left there, according to the plans and agreements that had been reached,” she added.

He noted that two weeks ago there were attempts to commit a crime by the Russian army in one of the maternity hospitals in Mariupol. He warned that “as it later became known, the attempts were made with an openly provocative aim, and the false material that was presented was revealed.”

Pictures were published last Saturday evening of corpses lying in the streets of Bucha, some of them handcuffed. In this regard, the adviser to the Office of the President of Ukraine, Mikhail Podolak, declared that the civilians “were defenseless” and “did not pose any threat” and “were shot dead by Russian soldiers.”

“The Russian armed forces, as part of the reconfiguration of their presence, left the Bucha district on March 30, and for the next three days the mayor spoke there on television, saying that the city had returned to normal. The Ukrainian armed forces appeared there, showing the streets where there were no corpses, And after three days, most likely, I decided to organize a similar rally.”

Yesterday, the Russian Ministry of Defense considered the photos provocative, and denounced that they are a prepared scene for the Western media.

According to the military entity, the facts “conclusively confirm that the photos and videos of Bosha are another theater of the Kyiv regime of Western media, as happened in Mariupol with the birth, as well as in other cities.” (agency summary)
