War in Ukraine: France sent 33 tons of humanitarian aid


France has sent 33 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Poland to help Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war, Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said on Monday.

These are “tents, medicines, food”, “everything that helps people to be welcomed in the best conditions”, specified the minister on France 2.

Two Civil Security planes “full of medicine”, according to Gérald Darmanin, are also due to arrive on Tuesday.

“More than 30 tons” of humanitarian aid will also leave at the “early week” for Moldova where there are several thousand other Ukrainian refugees, said the Interior Ministry.

France must submit a draft resolution to the UN Security Council on Monday “in order to guarantee unhindered humanitarian access, to meet the urgent needs of the populations remaining in Ukraine”, the Elysée announced on Sunday evening.

According to a UN estimate, the European Union must prepare for a humanitarian crisis “of historic proportions” in Ukraine. It could result in “more than seven million” internally displaced people if the Russian offensive continues.
