“The Red Cross has not yet reported how many people died, how many are in Donetsk hospitals, in the uncontrolled territory. We also don’t know how they will return the dead children. We are waiting for a response from the Red Cross. We are very outraged,” Krotevich explained .

She added that the ICRC cannot be financed by the countries of the world, because it does not fulfill its obligations.

“For 72 days I have not heard from the Red Cross whether my brother is still alive and where he is,” she said.
