"WFP analysis shows that more than a quarter of a billion people could face severe hunger in 2020 due to the fallout from #COVID19. We are pre-positioning 3-month stocks of food or cash assistance in or near the most fragile countries", reads the message.
Last month, CEO of the UN World Food Programme David Beasley claimed that the Covid-19 pandemic provoked the worst humanitarian crisis since the Second World War.
Earlier, we reported that a passenger aircraft of SkyUp company departed from Istanbul, carrying 109 Ukrainians aboard. Ukraine's Consulate General reported that on Facebook.
Apart from Ukrainians, there are 18 foreigners aboard; these are the people who enjoy the right to reside in Ukraine.
Among the evacuated are Ukrainian students, athletes and citizens who were treated from Covid-19 in Turkey.
Three dogs and their owners are aboard the aircraft, too.
