The International Red Cross Movement has decided not to suspend membership of the Russian Red Cross despite potential violations of neutrality rules revealed by the investigation. An investigation published last month by a group of news outlets, including the Guardian, was based in part on a series of leaked Kremlin documents that revealed plans to fund Red Cross branches in the occupied territory of Ukraine. It also became known that heads of regional Red Cross branches spoke of the need for war against Ukrainian Nazis", and uniformed Red Cross workers often visited military schools for children. At the beginning of this year, the Russian Red Cross signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Artek youth camp in the annexed Crimea, where some of the children deported from Ukraine were sent. The head of "Artek" Kostyantyn Fedorenko came under US and EU sanctions.
