South Korea to Give $10 million ‘Humanitarian Aid’ to Ukraine

Korean government provides humanitarian aid worth 10 million dollars to Ukraine, which is suffering from the Russian invasion.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on the 28th that it has decided to provide assistance to help the Ukrainian government, its people, and refugees who are in serious crisis due to the illegal invasion of Russia.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “This support will be provided promptly through consultations with governments of Ukraine and neighboring countries and international organizations.”

“We hope that the government’s support will be of practical help to the people of Ukraine and refugees,” he added.

President Moon Jae-in, during a staff meeting on the morning of the same day, ordered that the country seek humanitarian aid promptly for Ukraine, which has been invaded by Russia.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimated that more than 4 million Ukrainian refugees would be displaced to neighboring countries such as Poland, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia as a result of the Russian invasion.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights estimated that more than 100 civilians were killed in the invasion. At the 49th regular meeting of the UN Human Rights Council, Michelle Bachelet, the High Commissioner for Human Rights, reported that 406 civilians were killed from 24 to 27 (local time) and 102 people were killed, including 7 children.
