Four years into the conflict in eastern Ukraine, the need of the most vulnerable conflict-affected people for permanent and durable shelter solutions is becoming more and more acute. Ukraine has yet to take steps to assess and provide compensation for conflict-related damages to housing, land and property. Many people cannot even access humanitarian assistance since they lack title documents. The government should eliminate barriers to obtain property documentation for the conflict-affected population.

OVERVIEW OF THE CRISIS

Millions of people are continuing to suffer unnecessarily in eastern Ukraine due to the entrenched political impasse and the ongoing armed conflict. Despite many attempts at a ceasefire, hostilities continue with almost daily shelling, frequent localized clashes, and rapidly escalating mine and unexploded ordnance contamination. Given the restrictions on access, just under a million crossings of the ‘contact line’ occur each month, with people forced to wait for many hours in long lines with minimal services.
