PRESS RELEASES

29.07.2014

Appeal to the Ukrainian leadership, the heads of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and all the belligerent parties; to international human rights organisations, humanitarian organisations and Ukrainian human rights campaigners; to the OSCE leadership and the heads of the European states; to all who is not indifferent to the fate of the children living in the combat zone in Ukraine


No decent person, irrespective of his or her political views, nationality and religion, can stay indifferent to the suffering of children, who have happened to be in the conflict zone in south-east Ukraine.
According to our information, hundreds of children remain today in the combat zone and require emergency medical aid and elementary security.
Among these children there are those wounded, insulin-dependent, disabled, children with cancer and other severe conditions. Saving their lives is a matter of days and even hours.
We call on all the involved parties to immediately draw the lists of children in need of emergency aid with the indication of their whereabouts and capability to withstand transportation to relevant medical institutions.
We appeal to all the belligerent parties to immediately ensure safe corridors for the delivery of children to Russian medical institutions.
We plead with all the heads of the European states, the OSCE leadership and humanitarian organizations, including the International Committee of the Red Cross, to act as guarantors of this humanitarian effort.
The Russian side on our request is ready to do the following:
1. Provide vehicles for the transportation of children to relevant specialized care hospitals in a number of Russian cities.
2. Ensure that the children are escorted by qualified medical staff and volunteers.
3. Provide conditions for the children’s treatment and accommodation for their accompanying parents.
We appeal to your good will, humanity and compassion as we plead for your help in this endeavour.
