Geneva, 18 April 2016 Dear Colleagues,
The humanitarian situation in Eastern Ukraine remains difficult. This is due to the fighting clashes which began in April 2014 between militia armed groups in Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine, which proclaimed the slogan of autonomy/independence of their territory from the central authorities of Ukraine, and on the other side – the forces and armed groups under the central government in Kiev.
