(ANSA) – SASSARI, MAY 25 – After the fine by the Austrian authorities to the volunteers of the “Budoni Soccorso” Coop who brought basic necessities to the populations of Ukraine, Anas Italia, to which the cooperative is affiliated, launches an appeal to President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, visiting Sassari today for the 100th anniversary of the birth of Enrico Berlinguer. Giulia Dau, the head of the mission, who has just returned from Ukraine, will try to deliver a letter-appeal to Mattarella for her to intervene in this affair.
“We cannot remain inert in the face of the shameful story of the truck of our affiliate, chased and fined in Austria by the motorway management company for unauthorized humanitarian transport – explains Antonio Lufrano, spokesman for Anas Italia – On the roads of Europe in these ninety days, on the same roads that we have traveled with great difficulty in eight missions to bring food and medicines to Ukraine, to welcome over six hundred Ukrainian refugees, trucks loaded with weapons pass with impunity, even legally. And no one has anything to say. like us he has chosen to deal with civilians and only pursues peace, this obscene paradox appears profoundly unfair. of Foreign Affairs and the Italian Embassy in Vienna to take immediate action and give us the news. and go all our esteem and solidarity, have back what was extorted from you. And we demand a formal apology from the Austrian motorway company and the certainty that inhumane episodes like this will never happen again. Without this guarantee, Anas Italia’s humanitarian missions to Ukraine will no longer be able to resume. Anyone wishing to help us can do so with a contribution to the Iban IT68G0303204801010000742845 made out to Anas-causal ‘Humanity is not fined’, he concludes. (HANDLE).
