Ukraine

Ukraine has seen intense fighting since 24 February 2022. This has led to a grave humanitarian crisis, with millions of people in dire need, including those who have fled across borders and many more who are on the move inside the country or unable to leave encircled towns and cities. The United Nations and partners have been assisting vulnerable communities in the conflict-torn eastern regions for the past eight years. Now we are collectively scaling up our supplies and services to meet the massive and urgent relief and protection needs for civilians across the country.

Highlights Last Updated: 22 Jun 2022

  • 24 June marks four months–more than 120 days–of Russia’s war on Ukraine. Millions of civilians across all regions of the country have been affected.
  • The situation is dire in the Donbas, especially in Sievierodonetsk in Luhanska oblast and in eastern Donetska oblast. Humanitarian access is restricted and, at times, impossible.
  • The number of civilian casualties surpassed 10,000, including 4,662 killed and 5,803 injured.
  • On 20 June, a 12-truck inter-agency convoy delivered critical supplies to assist 64,000 people in Kramatorsk and Sloviansk in the GCA of Donetska oblast.
  • 8.85 million people have received humanitarian assistance since 24 February. The number of humanitarian partners has quadrupled since September 2021 to 320 organizations.
