Good morning, this is Irene. Today we’re covering the ILO’s break with Russia over Ukraine.

Meanwhile, ICRC chief, Peter Maurer, is meeting with Russia’s foreign minister in Moscow, following a trip to Kyiv last week. Access to prisoners of war is high on the agenda.

In Afghanistan, girls’ education remains in limbo after the Taliban shattered expectations and promises by closing classes above sixth grade.

ILO freezes out Russia. The International Labour Organization (ILO) on Wednesday said it is cutting all technical ties with Russia “until a ceasefire is agreed”, joining a growing list of organisations and companies ramping up pressure on Moscow to withdraw from Ukraine. The UN agency’s governing body passed a resolution “to temporarily suspend technical cooperation or assistance” to Russia, except in the case of humanitarian assistance. It will also explore moving its country office for eastern Europe outside the country.
