Disabled People in Ukraine

We, as Disabled Peoples' Organisations in the United Kingdom, are united in support of disabled people in Ukraine whose right to live in peace has been violated. We are outraged and horrified by Putin's illegal invasion and urgently call for an end to the bloodshed.
This war is an attack on freedom and democracy, not only in Ukraine but in the whole world. The impact on the lives of disabled people and people with chronic illness is immeasurable. Disabled people and people with chronic illness are the poorest and most disadvantaged people in society. This war will kill thousands of these people as we watch helpless in horror.
Many disabled people cannot manage without support and medicines and are most likely to be unable to access bunkers or even flee their homes due to inaccessible transport provision and a world made even more inaccessible by war. Some disabled people require electrical equipment to stay alive, which will not work in war damaged areas nd during blackouts. A lack of food and water is life threatening for many disabled people and people with chronic illness. We hear that there is a lack of accessible emergency transport to get disabled people to safety.
We stand with you, we call for peace, and we call for emergency relief and assistance to help you to survive.
