NEEDS & KEY FIGURES
While absent from the international radar, the conflict in eastern Ukraine and its resulting humanitarian needs are a daily reality for 4.4 million people affected by the conflict, with no hopes for a quick end to their suffering.
Some 3.8 million need humanitarian assistance, including livelihood and early recovery. Despite commitments to ceasefire over the past 30 months, hostilities continue. Of more than 10,000 people killed, 2,000 are civilians.
KEY HUMANITARIAN ISSUES
Ongoing Insecurity, Continued Displacement and Humanitarian Access

Serious violations of the ceasefire agreed in Minsk, Belarus are being reported daily and shelling has intensified in some areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. At least 4,356 people have been killed (including 298 from flight MH-17) and 10,016 have been wounded in eastern Ukraine as of 25 November (OHCHR/WHO).
