UN condemns Russia for blocking aid access to occupied flood-hit areas in Kherson Oblast

On 18 June, the United Nations condemned Russia for denying humanitarian aid access to Russian-occupied areas affected by the collapse of the Russian-controlled Nova Kakhovka dam earlier this month, CNN reports.

“The UN has been engaging with the governments of Ukraine and the Russian Federation regarding effective delivery of humanitarian aid to all people affected by the devastating destruction of the Kakhovka Dam,” Denise Brown, a humanitarian coordinator for Ukraine, said in a statement, adding that Russia had so far declined the UN’s request to access the areas under its occupation.

The UN said it will continue to seek the necessary access to the Russian-occupied affected areas and urged Russia “to act in accordance with their obligations under international humanitarian law”.
