Russia-Ukraine war

Ghana is appealing for peace in Ukraine, according to Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Shirley Ayorkor Botchway.

In addition, she called on citizens who leave the country’s shores to register with Ghanaian Associations in order to be tracked down easily for immediate evacuations in situations such as this one, but they don’t.

She continued to voiced her concern about the number of students that travel outside of Ghana to study but refuse to join any organization or register with our missions.

Harold Adlai Agyeman, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Ghana to the United Nations, spoke during an emergency UN Security Council meeting on February 23, immediately before Russia invaded Ukraine.

On Wednesday, February 23, he said, “the situation has ramifications not just for Ukraine and its near neighbors, but also for all of our countries.”

According to Harold Adlai Agyeman, “Security is indivisible, and one person’s insecurity affects everyone.”

He further expressed alarm about claims that hybrid warfare was being used against Ukraine, particularly cyberattacks on some of its essential infrastructure.

“We are concerned about the implications that an escalation of the situation in Ukraine poses to world peace and security,” Ghana’s UN envoy said.

Ghana advised everyone to “show caution in their separate unsettling but acceptable circumstances throughout the world” and to “uphold the collective security framework established by the United Nations Charter.”

“Ghana unwaveringly supports Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity as a bona fide United Nations Member State, whose participation in the Organization provides her with guarantees over its internationally recognized boundaries, which are the same borders with which she entered the Organization.”

Ambassador Agyeman also encouraged Russia to reconsider its plans, encouraging Ukraine to remain calm.
