Countries send aid to former Soviet Union
MOSCOW (AP) - A Pennsyl-
vania lottery millionaire chartered a
plane filled with medicine and food,
a German shipped her old furs and
the European Community is airlift-
ing thousands of tons of beef, butter
a d powdered milk.
Donors large and small world-
wide are helping the people of the
tormer'Soviet Union survive winter,
ind giving leaders in the newly in-
4ependent republics some breathing
room to enact painful economic and
On the eve of a 47-country con-
erence to coordinate assistance
flound for the former Soviet Union,
officials here are making plans to
Dandle the aid, stating their priorities
and assuring the West that the
donations won't be wasted.
Russia has already presented a
tentative wish-list for the two-day
conference that begins today in
Washington, Yevgeny Ivanov,
chairperson of President Boris
Yeltsin's newly established
humanitarian aid working group,
The needs include 2.5 million
tons of meat, 1.5 million tons of
sugar, and lesser quantities of dry
milk, macaroni, cereals and edible
oils, Ivanov said in an interview
The government also wants
Western permission to auction off
much of the donated food to com-
mercial distributors so the proceeds
would be available to supplement
incomes of the neediest citizens, in-
cluding retirees, the disabled and
large families, he said.
According to Ivanov, handing out
Western food would mean much of
it could be stolen or wind up in the
wrong hands. Selling it gives offi-
cials more protection against waste
and fraud while still making the
products available to the public, he
The Russian government projects
54 million of its citizens will have to
be helped this winter because of sky-
rocketing prices, and shortages of
food and medicine.
Up to $5 billion in goods and
loans will be required to cover the
anticipated needs, Ivanov said. He
met later with Richard Armitage,
State Department coordinator for
humanitarian assistance to the
former Soviet Union.
He also promised tough measures
to combat theft of foreign donations,
although he acknowledged corrup-
tion and black marketeering are
prevalent in the food distribution
Yesterday, the EC said Germany
alone has accounted for 57 percent
of the total aid to the former Soviet
Union, and German Chancellor
Helmut Kohl has asked other
countries to share the burden.
Moved by TV footage of a hun-
gry Muscovite, lottery winner Ken
Wayne of Erie, Pa., teamed with the
U.S. charity Americares. With a
$100,000 gift from Wayne, Ameri-
cares chartered a flight to Moscow in
December carrying 100 tons of
medicine and food. Wayne helped
unload the crates.
Ivanov described his favorite aid
example: a German person who sent
a boxload of furs to a Russian
"We were afraid to let the chil-
dren go outside in them, they could
get robbed," he said.
