Answering a question about the country’s provision of 500,000 USD in humanitarian aid for Ukraine, he said Viet Nam shares the international community’s deep concern over the humanitarian situation caused by recent developments in Ukraine.

Viet Nam perceives that it is necessary to immediately end the use of force, guarantee security and safety for civilians, protect essential infrastructure, respect and comply with international humanitarian law, and create conditions for humanitarian access and the evacuation of foreign communities, including Vietnamese people, in Ukraine, Viet noted.

Stressing Viet Nam’s support for humanitarian activities to assist conflict-hit people, he said in response to the UN appeal, Viet Nam decided to donate 500,000 USD, including 100,000 USD to the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), 100,000 USD to the World Health Organisation (WHO), another 100,000 USD to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and 200,000 USD to the Ukrainian Red Cross Society via the Vietnam Red Cross Society to help deliver humanitarian aid and assistance for people impacted by the Ukraine conflict.
