“The Russian invasion of Ukraine is causing massive devastation, destruction and suffering in the country, triggering the largest displacement in Europe since World War II – and sending shockwaves across the region and world. This senseless war must stop. It has inflamed a three-dimensional crisis — food, energy and finance — with devastating impacts on the most vulnerable people, countries and economies.”
5. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations:
“As dramatic as it is, the war in Ukraine cannot make us forget that climate change is an existential threat to us all - to the whole world. We can see the impacts everywhere – including right here in the Austrian Alps, where glaciers are retreating and ice and snow bridges disappearing. I have just returned from the Sahel where the toxic combination of runaway climate change, an uneven recovery from COVID-19, and now the radiating impacts of the war in Ukraine are pummelling countries across the continent.”

STORYLINE
UN Secretary-General António Guterres said on Wednesday he was deeply concerned about the risk of hunger becoming widespread because of the impact of the war in Ukraine on global food security.

Guterres is on an official visit to Austria for meetings with the country’s leaders and to chair the Chief Executives Board that will bring together the heads of the main UN entities from around the world in person for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is causing massive devastation, destruction and suffering in the country, triggering the largest displacement in Europe since World War II – and sending shockwaves across the region and world, the Secretary-General said after meeting Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen.

“This senseless war must stop. It has inflamed a three-dimensional crisis — food, energy and finance — with devastating impacts on the most vulnerable people, countries and economies. Global food security is an especially deep concern and was a focus of my recent meetings in Moscow and Kyiv.”

After meeting Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer, the Secretary-General said he was in touch with Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish and other officials to address food security.

“I have to say that I am deeply concerned hunger namely with the risk of hunger becoming widespread in different parts of the world because of the dramatic food security situation we are facing because of the war in Ukraine,” he said.

“It is my belief that, independently of many other solutions that deal with the need to keep markets open, to avoid export bans, to do everything to interfere in the markets to keep prices as low as possible, I do believe that there is no solution to the problem without bringing back to the markets the food production of Ukraine and the food and fertilizer production of the Russian Federation and Belarus.”

The Secretary-General said as dramatic as it is, the war in Ukraine cannot make us forget that climate change is an existential threat to the whole world.

Guterres and Van der Bellen visited Vienna Technical University to discuss renewable energy and the energy transition with students. He urged the students to go on with the fantastic things they are developing which he said showed that for almost all climate change problems we already have the technological solutions.

“So go on doing what you are doing but be more demanding in relation to those that have power and be more active in society, to change the mindset of people for these solutions to be naturally adopted.”

The Secretary-General visited the Vienna International Centre, the UN’s headquarters in Vienna, to meet UN personnel, the Director-General of the United Nations Office at Vienna and Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, Ghada Waly, and heads of other Vienna-based UN organizations.

In his meetings with Austrian leaders, Guterres praised the country and its capital city.

“It is wonderful to be back in Vienna – an important hub of the international system and a cherished home for many United Nations entities. This week you will host the leaders of the entire UN family as we gather for the first time outside of New York since the start of the pandemic,” he said.

Guterres noted the late Austrian writer and journalist Karl Kraus once said that “the streets of Vienna are paved with culture, the streets of other cities with asphalt”.

“I would add: with culture and with multilateralism. And that multilateralism is needed more than ever at this extraordinarily difficult and dangerous time.”
