Humanitarian access is a critical part of upholding International Humanitarian Law. Parties to conflict must allow humanitarian supplies in, and facilitate movement of civilians out of cities where fighting is taking place. The UK continues to support the UN and the Red Cross in negotiating access, and to call on Russia to uphold its obligation to facilitate full humanitarian access and respect international law.
