UOC (MP) Crimean Diocese send yet another humanitarian aid shipment for the so-called Novorossia
Authorities of Simferopol, Sudak, Feodosia and Armiansk together with representatives of the Diocese Simferopol and Crimea collected and sent to Donbasyet another humanitarian aid shipment. This was announced on March 2 byCrimean media quoting the press service of SimferopolAdministration.
According to Head Counselorof Simferopol Administration Vasyl Kurzyaba, who accompanied the ‘humanitarian convoy,’the shipment included food, baby food, medicines and warm clothes designed “for the residents of fraternal People's Donetsk and Luhansk Republics.”The town of Debaltseve that the Ukrainian army has recently left is indicated as destination.
The ‘humanitarian convoy’ consists of a few vans and SUVs. Freight handling is provided by volunteers, priests and parishioners of the UOC (MP)Simferopol and Crimea Diocese.
Previously, the Crimean clergy had sent more than 50 tons of ‘humanitarian aid’ to Ukrainian territory occupied by separatists.
As RISU has previously reported, Ukrainian military underscore that humanitarian aid directed to the occupied territories of Donbas never reach civilian population, since all deliveries are controlled by terrorists who administer donations at their own discretion. The humanitarian aid shipments delivered to Donbas from Russia is a good example of this.
“It is given out only to combatant leadership of the terrorist organization (DNR - Ed.). Not all the ordinary terrorists can get it. And if canned meat and cereals are nearly expired, the baby food, baby hygiene products and household chemicals are beyond the expiry date,” says Andriy Lysenko, the spokesman of Information-Analytical Center of the National Security and Defense.
The aid to civilians in occupied regions of Donbas is in fact the aid to terrorists, the Ukrainian military note. Therefore, volunteers and community in Ukraine organize donations only for residents of the liberated regions controlled by Ukrainian government.
