Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24. The conflict has continued ever since. Meanwhile, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres is visiting Russia and Ukraine to try to end the conflict. He is leaving for Russia on a three-day visit on Tuesday (April 26), local time.
Fighting has been raging in Ukraine for almost three months. But UN agencies are still gaining momentum to enter eastern Ukraine. Meanwhile, an extreme humanitarian crisis has spread in the area.
Moreover, the UN Security Council has so far failed to pass a resolution condemning the war. Because Russia is a permanent member of this important council. The country has veto power. The United Nations has not taken any action on the Ukraine crisis. Many are sharply criticizing this. It is said that the world’s highest agency has taken limited steps to deal with the crisis.
On the other hand, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is going to have a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Leaders of various countries have called for an end to the fighting, but there have been no signs of an end to the conflict.
