Ukraine supports UN’S global ceasefire initiative

Ukraine has joined an international appeal expressing strong support for the UN Secretary-General’s call for a global ceasefire amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the UN reported on June 22, a total of 170 countries and observers joined the initiative. Russia is not on this list.

The Russian side previously tried to manipulate the UN Secretary-General’s call for a global ceasefire. In particular, the Russian side said that this required lifting all international sanctions, including those imposed against Russia over the aggression in Donbas and the occupation of Crimea.
