Regional delegation in Moscow - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The Moscow delegation, which opened in 1992, combines operations in the Russian Federation with regional functions. The ICRC contributes to efforts to provide answers to families of missing persons and assists vulnerable conflict-affected populations in the northern Caucasus, in cooperation with the Russian Red Cross Society. It supports capacity building of all the region’s National Societies, particularly to restore family links and promote IHL. In all the countries covered, it runs long-term communication programmes to promote an environment conducive to the respect of IHL and other relevant norms and foster understanding of the ICRC’s mandate and work.
