Cyprus Sends Second Humanitarian Aid Batch to Ukraine

NICOSIA — Cyprus’ foreign minister says a second batch of food, medicine and other articles in combination with last month’s package that have been dispatched to Ukraine are the most humanitarian aid the east Mediterranean island nation has ever sent abroad.

Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said Wednesday the second batch is already on its way to the war-torn country through the European Union’s civil protection mechanism. It also includes items such as tents and sleeping bags. The total quantity of aid sent to Ukraine is about 215 metric tons (237 tons).

Citizens’ Commissioner Panayiotis Sentonas said contributions came from ordinary citizens, private businesses, the Cyprus Red Cross and the government.


NICOSIA - The death of a 26-year-old food delivery worker on a motorbike, in a collision with a car, drew protests on Cyprus from colleagues protesting labor conditions and demanding safety measures for them.
