UN Urges Russia, Ukraine To Provide Safe Passage for Civilians

by Kunle Awosiyan
UN humanitarian chief Martin Griffiths called on Ukraine and Russia to ensure safe passage for civilians fleeing fighting and for the delivery of humanitarian aid into areas of active hostilities.

The UN and its partners have provided food to hundreds of thousands of people, but the security situation has made it difficult to reach certain areas.

The statement comes as both sides lobbed accusations at each other of preventing civilians from safely leaving.

Ukraine’s ambassador to the UN accused Russia of shelling humanitarian corridors – blocking civilians from fleeing to Europe and preventing the delivery of life saving aid.
