Ukraine: High Commissioner visits border and people with disabilities
Description: Two and a half years of conflict have left more than two million Ukrainians displaced from their homes. The country has been divided into non-government controlled areas in the east, the Donbass region, and the majority of the territory under government control. Mayorsk is one of a handful of crossing points where people can now go back and forth. It is a slow and tortuous process but each day several thousand cross over here. Filippo Grandi spoke to displaced people during his first trip to Ukraine as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Aid Zone: Healing trauma and repairing homes in eastern Ukraine
Description: Around 3.7 million people have been affected by the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. Nearly 9 500 people have been killed while 1.8 million are internally displaced. Stanytsia Luhanska is one of the villages along the “contact-line” in eastern Ukraine. It is on the border separating the auto-proclaimed Republics of Luhansk and Donetsk with Ukrainian government-controlled areas. Every morning residents assess if, and how badly, their houses have been damaged. “Our priority is the most vulnerable areas. That means the areas next to the frontline and the ones not controlled by the Ukrainian Government. Forty percent of EU humanitarian aid goes to these non-government controlled areas, where there is no access to basic services. It’s imperative that all humanitarian organisations have full access to these areas, in respect of humanitarian international rights,” said Samuel Marie-Fanon, EU Humanitarian Aid. The video is part of the Aid Zone series produced by Euronews: http://bit.ly/AidZone Video by Euronews

#EmergencyLessons: My school photo | UNICEF
Description: "I dream of going back home to Donetsk." Meet Yaroslav and Nastya, two of 580,000 children directly affected by the conflict in East Ukraine since 2014. Children in the most conflict-affected areas have lost months of schooling or have to cross checkpoints just to get to school. Despite the challenges, approximately 70,000 displaced children have been enrolled in new schools. School means more than a classroom and homework for many of these children. UNICEF and EU’s work in Ukraine responds to these children’s needs in promoting an environment where they can learn life skills, conflict resolution and peace-building techniques.

Mines et munitions non explosées en Ukraine : la menace continue
Description: Mines antipersonnel, bombes et munitions non explosées – la population de l'Ukraine orientale est confrontée quotidiennement à ces dangers. Les combats se poursuivent dans certaines régions et ont cessé dans d'autres, mais les restes explosifs de guerre menacent les civils partout. Le CICR tente de prévenir les accidents de mines en informant les gens sur les risques qu’ils encourent. Nous expliquons comment éviter le danger, nous organisons des séances de sensibilisation spécialement destinées aux enfants et nous installons des signaux de dangers et des affiches. Même quand un conflit est terminé, les restes explosifs de guerre continuent de représenter une menace pour de nombreuses années. AV262A
