"After the inquiry of the Red Cross, the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine issued a decree on the recognition of the Russian cargo as humanitarian one. On Aug. 18, the Ukrainian customs officials are waiting for the Red Cross to carry out the necessary customs procedures," he said. According to Makarenko, after the inspection, identification of the goods and documenting of the humanitarian convoy from Russia, it will be allowed to enter the territory of Ukraine.
"We agreed with the Red Cross mission that the cargo will arrive in the Izvaryne-Donetsk (Rostov region) international checkpoint in batches and will be transferred only to official representatives of the Red Cross, who will be accompanying it, and only after it passes border and customs control," Makarenko wrote.
