Tawakkol Karman to visit Warsaw and Kiev in solidarity with Ukrainian refugees

Accompanied by her colleagues Liberian Lima Gbowe and American Judy Williams, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights activist has arrived in Ukraine to condemn the Russian aggression and express their solidarity with Ukrainians.

The three Nobel laureates visited a refugee camp in Lviv, the largest city in western Ukraine, and listened to the suffering of its refugees.

In the meanwhile, they also met with the governor and mayor of Lviv that is considered a very important city for hosting refugees and displaced persons.

In a speech to Ukrainian refugees in Poland, Tawakkol Karman stated that Putin turned Ukraine from a basket of global food into a disaster area whose cities have been destroyed, its population displaced, its services disrupted, and its territory occupied.

She also noted that the adventures by some regimes and governments have certainly contributed to the expansion of conflicts, wars and chaos.

In conclusion, she said that it is a wrong choice to resort to the war as an alternative to politics and negotiation, stressing that such a thing should be rejected by everyone and that it’s important to discard leaders and governments who see wars as legitimate ways to expand and obtain political and economic benefits.
