Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is calling on the international community to “find a pathway to peace” in order to arrive at a solution to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
According to a report from the New York Times, Western officials estimate that hundreds of thousands of people have been killed, millions of Ukrainians have fled and the country has sustained tens of billions of dollars worth of damage since Russian forces began their full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022,
“Three years of battling Covid-19, spending money to save lives and livelihoods, and when you thought that Covid was over and you were bouncing back, here comes this conflict between Russia and Ukraine and people thought it was going to last one month, two months, three months. Now it’s almost two years,” Mr. Skerrit said. “And there is no sign that this war is going to end anytime soon.”
