According to UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi, one million refugees have fled Ukraine since the Russian incursion began.
According to CNN, Grandi stated, “In just seven days, we have witnessed the evacuation of one million migrants from Ukraine to neighboring nations.”
“For many more people inside Ukraine, it’s time for weapons to be silenced so that life-saving humanitarian aid may be delivered,” he continued.
South Korea is relocating its embassy in Ukraine from Kyiv to a “safe area,” the country’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday as Russian troops step up their assault on the Ukrainian capital.
The ministry did not disclose the embassy’s destination, citing safety reasons. The embassy will resume operations once it settles down in the new location, the ministry said.
South Korea’s Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong spoke with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba by phone on Wednesday, according to the ministry.
