The UAE announced, on Wednesday, that it is providing relief aid to the affected civilians in Ukraine at a value of five million dollars, in response to the urgent appeal of the United Nations and the regional response plan for refugees in Ukraine.

She noted  the importance of focusing on the deteriorating humanitarian situation for civilians and ensuring their protection, as well as allowing entry for humanitarian agencies, establishing safe corridors, and allowing anyone who wishes to leave to do so without discrimination or obstacles according to an official statement published by WAM.

She noted that this aid  reflects the state's focus on the principles of human solidarity in conflict situations. 

On Tuesday, the United Nations and its humanitarian partners launched two coordinated emergency appeals to raise $1.7 billion aimed at urgently providing humanitarian support to people affected by the conflict inside Ukraine and refugees who have fled to neighboring countries.

Speaking at the launch event, UN Secretary-General António Guterres urged a response to these two life-saving appeals.

Guterres said the humanitarian response plan inside Ukraine requires $1.1 billion to meet the escalating humanitarian needs of more than six million people affected and displaced by military operations.

Outside the country, the plan calls for $551 million to help Ukrainians who have fled across the border, primarily to Poland, Hungary, Romania and Moldova.

He explained that the two plans require funds to enhance critical medical and health supplies, drinking water, shelter and protection.

For his part, said the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths at a press conference in Geneva:  The crisis has become very fierce in a very short time. 

The number of refugees fleeing from Ukraine to neighboring countries rose to 836,000 as of March 1, according to a census prepared by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees released on Wednesday.

Thus, the number of refugees rose by 160,000, from 677,000 Tuesday, with the withdrawal of what the High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, announced during an urgent appeal to fund humanitarian aid for the country and for people who fled the fighting.

The commission said that there are 835,928 people who have fled Ukraine, of whom 453,982 have found refuge in Poland.
