HUMANITARIAN AND DEVELOPMENT NEXUS
As the conflict in eastern Ukraine continues, humanitarian and development actors need to work closely together to support IDPs and the conflict-affected population in order to promote durable solutions, maximize resources, build upon a wide range of expertise, and ensure that their programmes are complementary and sustainable.
Security situation: In July 2017, OHCHR recorded 49 conflict-related civilian casualties: 42 killed and 9 injured.
On July 7, two explosions occurred in the central square of Luhansk city (NGCA) killing one and injuring five people.
Security situation: In June 2017, OHCHR recorded 65 conflict-related civilian casualties: 12 killed and 53 injured. In June, mine related incidents accounted for over quarter of civilian casualties.
On 11-12 June, the village of Olhynka (Volnovasky Rayon, 10 km from the contact line) was affected by fighting, with 13 residential houses damaged. Allegedly, the area was shelled because of military personnel stationed in the village.
Purpose: To analyse the general context for housing solutions and compensation in other contexts in order to make relevant recommendations for Ukraine on the ways ahead of policy formation, formation of compensation, restitution and compensation claims, development of housing programs. Through looking at the case studies of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia&Herzegovina, Colombia, Cyprus, Georgia, Molodva and Serbia, the Housing, Land, and Property Technical Working Group found the following general trends that Ukraine should take into consideration:
Discrimination against individuals with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities (SOGI) in Ukraine is widespread, with several dozen hate crimes and incidents reported each year. Almost 30% of all hate crimes reported in 2015 were based on SOGI, and almost 50% of violent attacks were motivated by the victim’s real or perceived SOGI.
Security situation: In April 2017, OHCHR recorded 62 conflict-related civilian casualties: 11 killed and 51 injured. On April 23, a mine-related incident killed one person and injured two staff of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine in Pryshyb (Luhansk NGCA). For the first time since the beginning of the conflict, the number of civilian casualties as a result of mine-related incidents outnumbered those as a result of shelling.
In February 2016, the Government of Ukraine suspended social payments and pensions to some 500,000 - 600,000 IDPs in eastern Ukraine, pending verification of their continued presence in the place of IDP registration. The suspended benefits included benefits paid to displaced persons under Cabinet of Ministers Resolution No. 505 as well as pensions and other types of social payments.
Security situation: In February, OHCHR recorded 73 conflict-related civilian casualties (11 killed and 62 injured) – the highest numbers since August 2016. This increase is attributed to the escalation of hostilities in Avdiivka/Donetsk/Makiivka area from 29 January to 3 February 2017, which was accompanied by massive shelling from artillery and multilaunch rocket systems of populated areas on both sides of the contact line.
