The Ambassador of Belarus in Kyiv, Ihar Sokal, said that last year, Belarus accommodated Ukrainian children from families of the Ukrainian military, as well as families of immigrants from Donbas.
“In August, at the request of the Ukrainian side, Belarus provided health treatment for Ukrainian children from families of military personnel, as well as low-income families of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, temporarily residing in the Lviv region,” the ambassador told BelTA.
Mr Sokal also said that the Belarusian side is working on the plan of delivering the second humanitarian convoy to Ukraine in 2018. The previous humanitarian convoy was sent to Ukraine in the summer of 2017.
“In cooperation with the International Committee of the Red Cross, Belarusian humanitarian aid was delivered to Ukrainian citizens in the conflict zone on both sides of the demarcation line (total weight 58 tons, food and hygiene items). Now we are working on delivering the second humanitarian convoy this year,” the ambassador said.
