But we, the female and male staff of the United Nations, are working every day for many brave Ukrainian organizations as well as for the people of the country. ‘

Guterres said he had held important talks with President Zelensky to make the removal of detainees from Mariupol a reality.

He said the United Nations was working for a complete ceasefire.
