With the beginning of the full-scale russian invasion, the fundamental human rights of every inhabitant of Ukraine have been violated and despised regularly. In particular, at least half a million Ukrainians urgently need the opening of humanitarian corridors. This was announced in the ether of the Bloomberg news agency by Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk.
She stated that in many cases the occupier did not give the Ukrainian side permission to deliver medicines, food and other necessities, as well as permission to evacuate people.
– I am authorized by the President of Ukraine to hold talks with the russian side. It never keeps its word. They promise to open the corridors in the evening – and in the morning they can shoot the gathering place. They may not allow people to leave basements and bomb shelters or seize a moving humanitarian convoy. Putin is at war with women and children, taking them hostage. Ignoring international humanitarian law, he deported them to russia and ignored requests from world leaders to open humanitarian corridors. Its goal is to destroy the civilian population and break the will to resist, the minister said.
According to her, now much depends on the position of world leaders who are watching the situation in Ukraine and the humanitarian catastrophe, which is deepening in our country.
The Deputy Prime Minister emphasizes that Ukraine cannot be defeated by putin, as this would be a defeat for the entire civilized world. She calls to unite and help Ukrainians in the fight against the aggressor.
“Help to save democracy in the world, save international law and conventions – everything that protects human rights and freedoms, that was so difficult to form and defend after World War II” – the head of the Ministry of Reintegration addressed the American audience.
