The United Nations has denounced the recent series of Russian assaults in Ukraine.

The UN’s representative, Stéphane Dujarric, strongly denounced the recent series of assaults on important structures in different areas of the nation. These attacks have reportedly caused harm to innocent civilians, including children, and have also caused destruction to residential and commercial buildings.

On Friday, in New York, he informed journalists that the United Nations was worried about the increasing intensity and the danger it presented to citizens throughout the nation, especially with the harsh winter conditions approaching.

Attacks prohibited

We strongly emphasize that according to international laws on humanitarianism, any acts of violence towards non-military individuals or structures are not allowed and must be ceased immediately.

According to reports from UN officials, energy facilities, schools, hospitals, and other public buildings were destroyed in attacks. The southern Kherson region and the eastern Donetsk region were hit hardest by these attacks.

On Thursday night, Kharkiv City was also targeted in an attack. Mr. Dujarric stated that NGOs in the area offered emotional assistance and supplies for housing to those affected by the destruction of their homes.

Aid to frontline civilians

“We and our partners are actively providing essential assistance to communities on the front lines. Recently, a collaborative humanitarian convoy delivered necessary aid to approximately 1,600 individuals residing in the town of Orikhiv in the Zaporizhzhia Region,” he stated.

In the Zaporizhzhia region, the UN and its partners have transported 14 convoys to communities on the front line this year. These convoys have provided crucial assistance to over 30,000 individuals residing near the southern front.

The UN Spokesperson reported that there have been a total of 96 humanitarian convoys sent to frontline areas since the start of the year.

Before the arrival of winter, aid workers are providing essential supplies, such as warm blankets, mattresses, and portable heaters. The United Nations and its partners are requesting $435 million to provide winter aid to over 1.7 million individuals in Ukraine until March of next year.
