Antonio Guterres visited kyiv and several nearby cities.

Two explosions shook the Shevchenkivskyi district, in the center of kyiv, on Thursday, while the Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, was in the Ukrainian capital to meet with President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Guterres criticized the UN Security Council for failing to prevent or end the war. He stated that this is a source of great frustration.

However, he indicated that the UN is trying to guarantee the evacuation of civilians trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol.

Guterres told the BBC that “a nuclear war is unthinkable” and stated that the UN will not give up and seek peace in Ukraine.
