The UN Secretary-General tweeted that I have arrived in Ukraine after visiting Moscow. We will continue our work to expand humanitarian aid and secure the evacuation of civilians from conflict zones.
Kyiv, ANI. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has described the Russia-Ukraine war as “absurd”. Guterres is on a visit to the war-torn country Ukraine. During his visit to Borodyanka, Ukraine, the UN Secretary-General said he imagines his family in a room that has now been destroyed. Guterres was quoted as saying by OCHA (UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarians) that I see my granddaughters running in panic, a part of the family is finally lost. Therefore, war in the 21st century is an absurdity. This war is very bad.
The UN chief arrived in Ukraine on Wednesday after his visit to Moscow. During this, he tweeted that I have reached Ukraine after visiting Moscow. We will continue our work to expand humanitarian aid and secure the evacuation of civilians from conflict zones. At the same time, he said that the sooner this war ends for Ukraine, Russia and the world, the better.
After the Secretary-General’s return to Kyiv, UN spokesman in Ukraine Chris Janowski said the UN chief’s visit to these places was a sad and shocking experience. People are hurt by what has happened to the local people in the war.
UN chief personally impressed by the circumstances of the war
The UN quoted Janowski as saying that the Secretary-General was directly impressed. Also he was personally affected by it. He has imaginatively seen his own family in this situation. This sounds like a terrible idea to all of us. Janowski added that the UN chief in Borodyanka had spoken to the region’s governor, who said that although people were leaving, they were still searching for bodies of their families in some homes.
ICC (International Court of Justice) prosecutor Karim Khan launched an investigation into possible war crimes and crimes against humanity on March 2, after 43 state parties requested the ICC for an investigation. The focus of the investigation is the alleged crimes committed in the context of the situation in Ukraine since 21 November 2013. Since the start of the investigation, a team of analysts, anthropologists and investigators have investigated several locations in Ukraine, including Lviv, Kyiv and Bucha, the ICC prosecutor said.
