3 scenario of following events from Presidential Administration
This was informed by secretary of the President Svyatoslav Tseholko during a press briefing inKyiv.
He mentioned that no civilized country would refuse humanitarian aid. In the city of Luhansk people remain without electricity, running water and medicine for 11 days already.
‘During all this time Ukraine has been searching for possibility and ways to deliver help to this city’, – he said and added that the city is being controlled by terrorists who don’t allow to send help.
Tseholko mentioned that the Red Cross committee had offered to guarantee the delivery of international help to the city of Luhansk. This organization agreed with RF about international humanitarian aid for Luhansk including Russian humanitarian load.
‘Yesterday Ukraine agreed to accept Russian part of international help in case it would be reloaded into the trucks hired by the Red Cross and delivered exclusively by its representatives. But Russia refused to accept this offer’, – the press secretary said.
Thus today there are 3 scenarios of further events.
‘The first scenario: intervention into Ukrainian territory under the pretext of delivery of humanitarian cargo’.
‘The second scenario: provocations with the cargo on the territory of Kharkiv oblast with high probability of aggression from Russia’.
‘The third scenario: the help for Luhansk comes through the checkpoint that is closes to the city. Our [Ukrainian] custom officers and border guards will be able to scan the goods at Ukrainian-Russian border. The mission will be moving across the territory controlled by the fighters, and after arriving to Luhansk the help will be distributed by the Red Cross’, – Tseholko said.
He also mentioned that the decision to accept humanitarian aid for Luhansk and to prevent the large-scale invasion of Russian was adopted at a joint meeting on the night of August 12 to 13 with the participation of President Petro Poroshenko, Ukrainian Prime-Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Turchynov and other Ministers.
‘This day Ukrainian part of international humanitarian aid goes to Luhansk’, – the press secretary said.
