UN releases $20 million for emergency aid to Ukraine

The UN unlocked 20 million dollars for emergency humanitarian aid for Ukraine and neighboring countries, announced the organization’s secretary general, Antonio Guterres, while urging Russian President Vladimir Putin to end his military offensive.

“The United Nations intensifies its humanitarian operation in and around Ukraine and announcing that we are immediately devoting $20 million from our response fund to respond to urgent needs,” the UN chief told reporters.

This aid will be distributed “in a neutral and impartial manner.” “We help people who need it, regardless of where they are,” she said.

The invasion of Ukraine “It is an error, against the Charter” of the United Nations, and “it is inadmissible but it is not irreversible,” he repeated before adding: “I reiterate my call to President Putin: stop the military operation, bring the troops back to Russia.”
