UN chief: Ceasefire in Ukraine "at the moment doesn’t seem possible"
A humanitarian ceasefire in Ukraine "doesn't seem possible" at this time, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said Wednesday during a press conference.
Why it matters: Peace negotiations between Ukraine and Russia have recently hit a dead end, with Russian President Vladimir Putin vowing Tuesday to continue the invasion of Ukraine until victory, according to Reuters.
What they're saying: Guterres said he has appointed an envoy to travel to Ukraine and Russia to help negotiate a UN humanitarian ceasefire to help deliver aid to civilians.
- "I don't think we have a chance to have a humanitarian ceasefire as we wanted," Guterres said.
- He said the UN proposed ceasefires and humanitarian corridors for aid delivery and civilian evacuation to Russia but has not received a response.
