UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Sunday reiterated his call for a halt to conflict between Russia and Ukraine to allow civilians to leave threatened areas.
“It is absolutely necessary to establish a pause in fighting in Ukraine to allow the safe travel of civilians from Mariupol, Kharkiv and Sumy, as well as from all other places implicated in the conflict”, the UN chief confirmed in a tweet.
He also called for “guarantees of the delivery of critical humanitarian supplies”, such as those from the United Nations that began arriving in the country on Saturday.
On Saturday, the UN coordinator for the crisis in Ukraine, Amin Awad, called for an “immediate humanitarian stop”, emphasizing the urgency to prioritize geographical areas and regions “where there is urgent humanitarian need to accelerate the delivery of life”. are “-saving aid”.
During the week, an emergency appeal was launched by the United Nations and its allies to raise $1.7 billion to provide necessary humanitarian aid to Ukraine. The appeal follows the first plan dedicated to the situation inside Ukraine that requires $1.1 billion to meet the growing humanitarian needs of the more than six million people affected and displaced by military operations over the next three months.
The second plan, which deals with humanitarian work in neighboring countries, provides $551 million to help Ukrainians fleeing borders, mainly to Poland, Hungary, Romania and Moldova.
