Introduction

In response to the continuing events in Ukraine, humanitarian partners have established a humanitarian situation monitoring process (HSM) which aims to inform planning both for any immediate responses required as well as for adequate preparedness measures in case the humanitarian situation deteriorates further.

The first phase of the HSM is a rapid needs assessment, conducted by telephone with key informants in Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts (provinces) in Eastern Ukraine. The results of this assessment are presented in this report.

The HSM’s second phase, comprising further interviews with key informants, direct observation and secondary data collection and analysis, is already underway, and in addition to Luhansk and Donetsk covers neighbouring regions in the East as well as major urban centres such as Kyiv. The report from the second phase will be published in mid-July and will provide a more comprehensive overview of the humanitarian situation. This is therefore a preliminary report based on the first phase results only, providing a quick snapshot of the current situation in the two most affected regions.
