Russia shares "fears" about Ukraine humanitarian situation with UNHCR
MOSCOW. March 19 (Interfax) - Russia has "shared [its] fears" about the humanitarian situation in Ukraine with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the head of the Russian Federal Migration Service said on Wednesday.
"I won't keep it secret that we have shared our fears with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Our fears were understood to a certain extent, and a certain form of interaction with that organization has begun," Konstantin Romodanovsky told reporters in Moscow.
"I think that by combined efforts we will minimize the problems that the unstable situation in Ukraine may cause us," he said.
