Secretary-General Deeply Shocked by Russian Federation’s Deadly Missile Attacks on Cities across Ukraine

The following statement was issued today by the Spokesman for UN Secretary-General António Guterres:

The Secretary-General is deeply shocked by today’s large-scale missile attacks by the armed forces of the Russian Federation on cities across Ukraine that reportedly resulted in widespread damage to civilian areas and led to dozens of people being killed and injured.

This constitutes another unacceptable escalation of the war and, as always, civilians are paying the highest price.
