“We are heartbroken by the situation in Ukraine, yet still moved by the resilient spirit on display there every day,” Harvey Mason jr,  CEO of Recording
Academy said in a statement. “We hope the segment inspires our worldwide audience to get involved to support these critical humanitarian efforts.” 

In the same press release, Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans said, ''History has shown us that conflict and poverty are closely interconnected, resulting in the weakening of the rule of law, a collapse in economic development and often catastrophic humanitarian situations. There is no doubt that the conflict in Ukraine has led to a humanitarian crisis – members of Global Citizen saw this ourselves at the Ukrainian-Polish border.''

He added, "Millions have fled their homes, with millions more likely on their way. Global Citizen has a history of responding rapidly to humanitarian crises, and this is no different. We're calling for an immediate end to this crisis, and the provision of immediate financing to support refugee relief efforts not just in Ukraine but around the world."
