UN relief chief outlines immediate humanitarian priorities for Ukraine - UN on GEO´ 
Posted By: GEO´ PRWire Team - Gibraltar


Allowing civilians to safely leave areas under fire in Ukraine, and delivering desperately needed aid to these locations, are among immediate priorities for humanitarians, the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, Martin Griffiths, told the Security Council on Monday. 

 



Mr. Griffiths, together with Catherine Russell, head of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF),  briefed ambassadors on how the UN and partners are responding to rising needs since the Russian offensive began 11 days ago

“People are watching as this unnecessary conflict engulfs cities and civilians. As well as what’s happening in Ukraine, they have an extra sense of dread over the impact this will have on the wider world. I include myself in this category,” he said. 

Lessen the suffering 

Mr. Griffiths, who is also the UN Humanitarian Coordinator, outlined three immediate priorities “to lessen the pain and suffering we are all watching unfold in real time.” 

First, the parties must take constant care to ensure military operations spare civilians, homes and other infrastructure.  Furthermore, people wanting to leave areas of active hostilities must be allowed to do so safely and voluntarily. 

As civilians in places such as Mariupol, Kharkiv and elsewhere under attack, desperately need aid, especially life-saving medical supplies, safe passage for humanitarian supplies is also required. 

His third point highlighted the urgent need for a system of constant communication with the parties to support aid delivery.  He explained that humanitarian notification systems have been implemented in other situations.
