Situation Overview

In March 2014, anti-government protests in Ukraine led to the removal of a Kremlin-friendly leader from power, and Russia invaded and annexed the Crimean Peninsula. A month later, pro-Russian separatists backed by Russia began capturing territory from the Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts (the Donbass region). In 2015, the peace Minsk agreement was signed, however never fully implemented and the fighting has transformed into a trench war over the past eight years. After having built up significant military forces on Ukraine’s borders in 2021, and after having recognized the independence of Russian-backed self-declared republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine, Russia launched on the 24 February a large-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine by air, land and sea targeting several regions and key cities including Kyiv.

Humanitarian situation
Heavy fighting and shelling continue across several towns and cities in Ukraine, with increasing human cost and humanitarian consequence. Most of these casualties were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area. Reports of civilians trapped in towns and cities under shelling continue. Inside Ukraine, severe essential health supplies, fuel and cash shortages are reported, with heightened insecurity affecting access to basic services. Population movement remains fluid and according to latest figures by UNHCR, close to 900,000 people have now fled Ukraine to neighboring countries, while over 100,000 have so far been internally displaced. Real figures are considerably higher as corroboration is ongoing, albeit with delays and security challenges.

The UN Flash Appeal was released on 01/03 for the Ukraine Crisis, requiring 1.7 billion USD : 1.1 billion USD to assist 6M people in need of humanitarian and protection assistance, including 2.4M IDPs amongst an estimated 12M people in need. The Regional Refugee Response Plan requires 550.6 million USD to assist 2.4M individuals of an estimated 4M affected people in support of host countries including Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.

Priorities of the Ukraine Flash Appeal include:

o Multi-sectoral life-saving assistance to displaced and non-displaced populations:
Protection, shelter, health, NFIs, food security and livelihoods, water, sanitation, hygiene, and education (Multipurpose cash)

o Logistics & communication

o Protection of conflict affected populations (including VBG, AVR)

o Provision of basic services in areas impacted by the escalation of hostilities.

Priorities of the Regional Refugee Response Plan include:

o Critical life-saving assistance at border points

o Strengthening and supporting access to mental health and psychosocial support; provision of basic and domestic items including food, unrestricted cash assistance, and core relief items; and WASH, education and health services, including sexual and reproductive health services

o Protection interventions

Both call for specific attention to the needs of most vulnerable populations.
