Description
Speaking at today’s Security Council meeting on Ukraine, the Secretary-General said that the war in Ukraine is one of the greatest challenges ever to the international order and the global peace architecture, founded on the United Nations Charter, because of its nature, intensity, and consequences.

Earlier today, we and our humanitarian partners delivered eight trucks of critical supplies for people in Sievierodonetsk, which is in the eastern Luhanska oblast, where sustained and intense fighting is taking an enormous toll on civilians.  

We have sad news from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Our colleagues at the UN Mission have confirmed the death of one peacekeeper from Nepal.  

The UN team in the Republic of the Congo, led by Resident Coordinator Chris Mburu, is reporting that 80 per cent of health districts across the country now have the capacity to implement emergency response plans for COVID-19 or other health crises.

On Sudan, our colleagues tell us that humanitarian needs are increasing to unprecedented levels due to the economic crisis, prolonged dry spells, and last year’s erratic rainfall.

David Gressly, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, in a statement on Monday, welcomed the truce in Yemen and urged all parties to adhere and respect it, as well as take all necessary measures to ensure its successful implementation.
