The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says up to 4 million people in Ukraine are facing a “desperate situation” as winter progresses in Ukraine. The country is in its fourth year of war in the eastern regions—a conflict that has claimed up to 10,000 people and injured 23,500 others. Spokesman Jens Laerke said most of the people in urgent need are in the separatist regions, while there are pockets of need in government-controlled areas. “One of the results of this deteriorating crisis is that we now estimate that 1.2 million people in Ukraine on both sides of the contact line are food insecure.” He added that 600,000 people in eastern Ukraine are not able to access their pensions, which are critical for their survival.
