13-12-1995 News Release 95/55
Geneva (ICRC) - The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is still working in Chechnya, in particular in the area south of Grozny. Despite press reports to the contrary, activities are continuing in Grozny itself: the ICRC is meeting the needs it considers essential, and is in particular providing drinking water to part of the population. Other activities not directly related to the emergency have been temporarily reduced, owing to renewed tension in the run-up to elections.
