“Internal displacement must be brought back on to the global agenda”, urges NRC’s Secretary General Jan Egeland ahead of the NRC Global Displacement Conference 2017. “Humanity has no borders, and no group should be neglected.”

In 2014, the ICRC started assisting refugees flowing out of the East of Ukraine into Russia due to the ongoing conflict. Many of those displaced had left behind their homes to start from scratch in new cities.

Some of these refugees settled down in the South of Russia. For the past three years, ICRC, together with local authorities and the local Russian Red Cross branches, offered assistance to those who were particularly vulnerable.

Popasnyanskyi vodokanal (PVK) now is in the process of increasing water supply to Luhansk NGCA after yesterday significant reduction from 800 cubic meters per day to approximately 300 cubic meters per day. The main reason of yesterday reduction of water supply was a payment issue. ‘Dzherelo novoho zhyttya’ (is a company, which has an agreement with PVK in the payment for water supply to Luhansk NGCA) did not pay fully the water bill for February 2017. Today PVK received partially payment for February (it is still not full payment).
