UN Under Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths said on Monday that he asked Russian and Ukrainian officials to convene for discussions on humanitarian issues during recent visits to the two countries.

“I also asked both to agree to an arrangement whereby the two parties, the Russian Federation and the Ukrainian authorities, would meet, convened by the UN, to discuss, on a virtual or actual basis, at any time, to discuss humanitarian issues,” Griffiths said during a press briefing on his trip.

The Embassy of the Russian Federation in Bangladesh encourages everyone who wants to receive up-to-date information on the current events and obtain an alternative point of view to follow the Embassy’s social media accounts.
