In anticipation of a potential new Russian wave, the Ukrainian Red Cross is preparing to provide more relief to the civilian population in the country’s war-torn regions.
During a visit to Berlin, Germany, Maksym Dotsenko the Secretary General of the Ukrainian Red Cross told Reuters that “everyone expects some intensification of the battle.”
Since the start of the invasion, around 11 million people have fled their homes, including seven million internally displaced and four million refugees in neighbouring states, mostly in Poland.
The largest civil organisation in Ukraine, the Red Cross, is unable to operate in the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine that are under Russian occupation.

Joining forces with the Ukrainian Red Cross, the Italian Red Cross plans to provide support to 120 shelters for internally displaced in the country.
