Delegation of International Red Cross Committee is generally satisfied with access to detainees provided to its representatives in Donbas.

“Last year there were concerns about the possibility of crossing the delineation but the problem is solved now. When the shootings start we delay or cancel our movements, but all in all we should admit that we are satisfied with the access we have”, - stated the head of the delegation in Ukraine Allen Ashliman at a press conference in Kyiv on Thursday.

During the press conference Ashliman informed that in the previous year Committee representatives managed to visit 580 people detained as a result of Donbas conflict in territories controlled by Ukrainian authorities and only 4 detainees in territories controlled by militants.
