At a meeting on Monday in Moscow with United Nations Undersecretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Martin Griffiths, the Russian foreign minister stressed the importance of his visit for the continuation of the international body’s activities in this sphere.

“Of course, today the situation in and around Ukraine is in 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 established contact with the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs quite a long time ago and stressed that such interaction helps to solve humanitarian problems faced by people not only in eastern Ukraine, but elsewhere.

Lavrov noted that all people in a difficult situation should receive humanitarian assistance and expressed that Russia is implementing such assistance more actively for people from the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.

“We are also cooperating with our international partners, including the UN, as well as with the International Committee of the Red Cross, to organize humanitarian convoys to such cities as Sumy, Kharkov, Mariupol,” Lavrov noted, in reference to the Ukrainian cities that are in the midst of the clashes.

During the meeting with the UN representative, Lavrov described the alleged events in the Ukrainian city of Bucha as “a attack of fakes” and estimated that a staging was carried out there, which Ukraine and the West are spreading through all possible channels and social networks.
