Press Release

Statement attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General – on Ukraine

10 October 2022

The Secretary-General is deeply shocked by today's large-scale missile attacks by the armed forces of the Russian Federation on cities across Ukraine that reportedly resulted in widespread damage to civilian areas and led to dozens of people being killed and injured.

This constitutes another unacceptable escalation of the war and, as always, civilians are paying the highest price.
