Photo story – Portraits from Ukraine’s conflict line, where humanitarian assistance is most needed


As Ukrainian armed conflict enters its fourth year, 3.4 million people in the eastern part of the country are in need of humanitarian support. Among them, the 200 000 residents living within 5 kilometres of the 457-kilometre contact line are most in need. Their lives are more heavily affected by continued shelling, limited freedom of movement, and scarcity of food, fuel and medicines, as well as by increased health risks and lack of access to health services.
