In total, 646,395 people have received assistance and support from the Russian Red Cross since the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis

“We have accumulated all our resources not to help people once, but to immerse ourselves in their problems, identify their needs, help them socialise in new conditions, understand how and in what else we can help.

We have seen a great demand for psychological support and this year we intend to strengthen this direction.

Since February of last year, 400,000 victims of the Ukrainian crisis have received humanitarian aid from us, and we are talking about humanitarian aid: things, food, rehabilitation equipment, and so on.

More than 21,000 more people received psychosocial support from us and in total, we helped more than 650,000 people in the Ukrainian crisis,’ said Pavel Savchuk , president of the Russian Red Cross .

More than 91,000 people received vouchers for grocery shops, pharmacies and clothing shops and more than 68,000 received material payments of between five and 15 thousand roubles.

In addition, during the year of operation of the unified hotline of the Russian Red Cross (tel. 8 800 700 44 50), more than 65.6 thousand people turned to it. They received psychological first aid, legal advice and help in reuniting family ties.

In total, RKK specialists, working together with the ICRC and the Central Tracing Agency, managed to find 105 people.

In the summer, the Russian Red Cross opened a mobile assistance centre in the Belgorod region for people affected by the Ukrainian crisis.

Since July, 3,661 people have been assisted.

A similar mobile assistance centre is scheduled to open in the Rostov region in March 2023

“The Russian Red Cross was the first organisation to open such mobile points in our country.

In them, people can apply for marriage to the RKK and leave an application for the restoration of family ties, as well as receive initial psychological help and psychosocial support,” said Pavel Savchuk.
