IRC extremely alarmed by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

  • On February 24, Russia deployed its military into Ukraine.
  • As the bombs and shelling have continued to escalate, people are fleeing their homes and desperately seeking safety.
  • The war in Ukraine will lead to grave human suffering. The world will bear witness to innocent deaths, destruction of civilian infrastructure and massive displacement inside the country and across Europe.
  • The IRC strongly supports the UN Secretary General’s call for the protection of civilians and adherence to international humanitarian law.
