In response to the international armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the ICRC scaled up its activities, setting up a regional delegation in Budapest. We work in close collaboration with the Hungarian Red Cross Society to promote the respect of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and reduce the protection risks resulting from the armed conflict.
