Vladimir Putin wants to oust the International Committee of the Red Cross from the occupied territories in Ukraine. Several leading members of the Russian Red Cross also openly support Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.

The chairman of the supposedly neutral organization is apparently involved in groups that collect money and materials for soldiers at the front and spread Russian propaganda. The German Foreign Office apparently indirectly finances the RussianRed Cross. The DRK said on Tuesday that the IFRK was responsible for the investigation and that it was in contact with the organization about this.
