Democracy Now! speaks with the Norwegian Refugee Council’s Jan Egeland, who is on the ground in Ukraine and says war could roll back nearly a decade of humanitarian progress made in the Ukrainian region. “We need reconciliation, we need peace,” says Egeland on the messages he is hearing from Ukrainians.
