Before the war, there were 2.7 million Ukrainians with a disability. But what happens when disaster strikes? Ukrainians with a disability talk of being left behind, unable to access information, without accessible transport, with inaccessible evacuation centres and bomb shelters and a lack of help from humanitarian aid organisations.
Marcin Nowacki from Poland describes the humanitarian convoy to Ukraine and his trip to Lviv and Kiev.
With the participation of EESC member Małgorzata Bogusz
The situation in Ukraine worsens hour by hour. Ukrainian women, men and children need us to be united in these challenging times. The EU and every Member State need to continue to live up to their responsibilities by protecting people, democracy and our shared values.
