Russia war: We must help Ukraine – UN begs member countries
The United Nations, UN, has urged the international communities to help Ukraine. UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, said Ukraine must be helped to cater for its humanitarian crisis. He made the call while appealing for $1.7 billion dollars to assist Ukrainians suffering from humanitarian needs due to the ongoing war. “United Nations agencies and our partners are now working 24/7 to assess humanitarian needs and scale up aid, particularly to women, children, older people and those with disabilities. “We must help Ukrainians help each other through this terrible time,” adding that “electricity and water supplies had been disrupted, roads had been damaged or destroyed by bombs.” He also noted that food and medicine were in short supply in some areas. Russia began its attack on Ukraine last week Thursday. Describing it as military operations, Russian President, Vladimir Putin, said the invasion was aimed at preventing Ukraine from joining NATO. Despite the attacks, Ukraine had insisted on joining NATO.
