"Currently, the main issue associated with the transfer of humanitarian assistance is  linked with the position of the Ukrainian side. Our party is ready to provide all documents and other information relating to the goods," RIA Novosti quoted an unnamed official. According to the source of the agency, after the issue is settled with the representatives of Ukraine, the humanitarian aid will be handed over to the Red Cross that may act as mediators in the process.
