Eastern Ukraine needs over 300 million dollars — UN

Humanitarian agencies, engaged in Ukraine's issue within the UN, apply for more than 300 million dollars to help the civilian population.

Spokesperson for the UN Secretary General Stephane Dujarric said this at a briefing in New York, an Ukrinform correspondent has reported.

"Humanitarian agencies in Ukraine have applied for more than 300 million dollars to assist about 3.2 million people, who belong to the most vulnerable segments of the population," the representative of the UN Secretary General said.

According to him, these funds are "focused on the preservation of life, including the delivery of food, health and providing with housing."

Dujarric also said noted that the UN humanitarian coordinator for Ukraine Neil Walker had reported that the number of internally displaced persons in Ukraine was more than a million, and that about two million civilians lived in a combat zone.
