Sunday, 30 July 2017 06:56

Between July 18 and 24, Russian humanitarian aid was delivered to the civilian population of Sana and Aden, respectively, in the Republic of Yemen. Aircraft belonging to the Emergency Ministry delivered over 40 tonnes of cargo, including large capacity tents plus food products.

On July 19, 62 citizens of Russia and several other countries were brought back to Moscow by a return flight from the Yemeni capital.

This humanitarian aid project was implemented upon the instructions of the Russian Government in close coordination with the authorities of Yemen, Saudi Arabia and several other countries as well within the framework of Russia’s efforts to ease the plight of the Yemeni people amid the ongoing armed conflict in the Republic of Yemen.

Moscow believes that the deteriorating humanitarian situation of civilians in Yemen is evidence of the imperative need to end the military confrontation and to promptly settle the protracted internal Yemeni conflict through negotiations and an inclusive national dialogue. Russia will continue to promote this solution.
