"People are drowning alive": Osadcha accuses Red Cross of inaction and calls for help for Ukraine. Video.
Ukrainian TV presenter Kateryna Osadcha criticised the International Committee of the Red Cross for its inaction and asked the organisation to help evacuate Ukrainians who were stranded in the flood zone after the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station was blown up. The celebrity reminded that the organisation is neutral and has access to both sides of the "conflict".
The star posted her appeal on Instagram. She stressed that there is currently no help from the committee. "People in Kherson are dying from flooding, they can't get out of their homes, they have nothing to eat. In addition, thousands of animals are suffering, and the zoo in Nova Kakhovka has been completely destroyed (to see photos and videos, scroll to the bottom of the page).
"Motor boats are turning off their engines to avoid hitting bodies - what is happening in the flood zone in the occupied territories is beyond comprehension. Meanwhile, the International Committee of the Red Cross is inactive. Oleshky, Hola Prystan and dozens of other settlements! People are locked in their homes, people are drowning alive!" - Katya Osadcha is outraged.
Gorbunov's wife is angry that the organisation, which is supposed to protect and support victims of war and other situations of violence, has not yet taken the initiative to save Ukrainians in the occupied territory. The artist compared inaction to murder.
"People have been left to die. With this video, I want to call on the Red Cross to act. It is the only organisation in the world that has a neutral status and access to both sides of the 'conflict'. People are dying. The military is supplying them with water and food. This is a terrible genocide and a global humanitarian crisis. Ukrainians need help! People are blocked, they are dying in their own homes, they don't want to help them," Osadcha said.
