“We Need Peace”: War in Ukraine Would Be Humanitarian Catastrophe for Millions in the Region

As tensions grow between Russia and NATO over a potential invasion of Ukraine, up to 2 million people in eastern Ukraine are at risk of massive displacement and violence if the conflict escalates. 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.
