STATEMENT BY THE HUMANITARIAN COORDINATOR FOR UKRAINE, DENISE BROWN, ON THE LATEST ATTACKS ON KRYVYI RIH AND OTHER CITIES
31 July 2023
The week started with continued attacks on major cities of Ukraine impacting, once again, civilians and civilian infrastructure.
The humanitarian community, along with local authorities, is on the ground in Kryvyi Rih, helping survivors of the strike that damaged residential buildings and other civilian infrastructure in the city, and left many killed and injured. Yesterday our teams also provided immediate aid to civilians whose houses were hit in Dnipro. Russia's invasion keeps causing devastation, and the situation worsens with each passing day. International humanitarian law continues to be ignored but is critical for justice and accountability.
