Oberbürgermeister Dieter Reiter:
“I am very grateful for the initiative and this strong gesture by the three orchestras. Munich is showing solidarity with its twin city Kiev and with all the people in Ukraine who are experiencing unimaginable suffering. Now our concrete support is needed.”

Anne-Sophie Mutter:
“Everyone can and must help now. Words alone are not enough. This is a terrible humanitarian disaster. We must stand together with the people of Ukraine. I ask you from the bottom of my heart for your donation to Save the Children so that as many children as possible in Ukraine and neighbouring countries can be helped.”

Executive Director of Save the Children Germany Florian Westphal:
“We call on the parties to the conflict to immediately cease hostilities and find a peaceful solution - to protect children, their families and all people in Ukraine. De-escalation is still possible. As long as fighting continues, we call on all sides to comply with their obligations under international humanitarian law and ensure that civilians and civilian objects - especially schools and hospitals - are protected from attack.”
