Annual Report 2009 - Regional Representation for Belarus, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine

This report covers the period 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2009.

Programme summary: The Federation regional representation in Moscow worked with the National Societies of Belarus, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine to support them in their work aligned with the Global Agenda Goals. Most of this support is laid out in the individual plans for each country, and is reported on through separate annual reports, which can be found here: Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine and Russia. As such, the plan for the regional representation tried to capture cross-country and regional themes.

This regional plan was closed at the end of 2009, as the country plans are well established as the primary vehicle for articulating the support to the four countries, in a more focussed way.

The activities in the field of humanitarian diplomacy were extended and an agreement was reached between the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the government of the Russian Federation to cooperate in supporting the modernization process of the Russian Red Cross.

Financial situation: There was no income received in 2009 to support this plan. The attached financial report shows an opening balance of 457,499 Swiss francs carried forward from the previous year and was re-allocated to other projects under the individual country plans.
