Nicki Minaj Says She is Heartbroken Over Russia-Ukraine Conflict, Sends Message to Mothers
The Rapper showed off her humanitarian side when speaking about the current Russia and Ukraine crisis, as she noted that what she has seen emerge so far due to the ongoing conflict has broken her heart.
Less than a week into the conflict, already international news outlets have estimated that more than 5,000 people, including military personnel and civilians, have already lost their lives. NBC News has ascertained that close to 400,000 Ukrainians have fled their homes and gone to nearby territories whose borders are still open to receive them.
Poland has been the top receiving territory as some of the surrounding territories to which they are land-locked are affiliated with or supports Russia. This means that there could be a refugee crisis on hand in several countries in the coming days as people seek shelter, safety, and asylum.
Nicki Minaj has now joined other celebrities who have called for more support for the refugees.
“SAW FOOTAGE OF BOMBS DROPPING AND IN THE BACKGROUND, YOU COULD HEAR CHILDREN SCREAMING. WHEN I TELL YOU IT BROKE MY HEART INTO PIECES…TO EVERY MOTHER FLEEING WITH YOUR CHILDREN, SAYING GOODBYE 2 YOUR HUSBAND…I CAN’T IMAGINE HOW AFRAID AND ALONE YOU MUST FEEL. GOD, PLS HELP THEM. TO EVERY SOLDIER, MAY GOD BE WITH YOU.”
