Statement attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General - on Ukraine 

Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary-General

The Secretary-General unequivocally condemns reported strikes today in the Ukrainian port of Odesa.  

Yesterday, all parties made clear commitments on the global stage to ensure the safe movement of Ukrainian grain and related products to global markets. These products are desperately needed to address the global food crisis and ease the suffering of millions of people in need around the globe. Full implementation by the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Türkiye is imperative.
