HUMANITARIAN COORDINATOR DENISE BROWN CONDEMNS WAVE OF DEADLY ATTACKS ON UKRAINE TODAY
10 October 2022
I am horrified by the wave of deadly attacks by the armed forces of the Russian Federation on Kyiv, Dnipro, Lviv, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia and other cities across most regions of Ukraine this morning.
This new escalation of the war killed civilians as they were just beginning their week.
The airstrikes hit densely populated urban centres while children were going to school, young people to the university, and others commuting to work.
I send my most heartfelt condolences to the people of Ukraine, who have, for too long, endured the horrors of this war.
Despite today’s strikes, humanitarian assistance continued to be delivered to people in desperate need of support.
Humanitarian aid will not stop. The United Nations and the entire humanitarian community are committed to staying and continuing our work to save lives and support people whose lives have been devasted by this war.
