Our international partners who are actively involved in the process. 16 European countries and the European Commission have offered their support. NATO's emergency response mechanism has been activated. The World Food Programme, the United Nations Population Fund, the International Organization for Migration and many others are helping. We appreciate and thank you for this solidarity and indifference," the Prime Minister stressed.
