Humanitarian situation in eastern Ukraine is worsening. This international organizations face significant challenges when providing assistance to the most vulnerable groups affected by the Donbas conflict, which started in April 2014, according to the UN News Center. UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs emphasizes that they just have no access to those needy groups due to the insecurity, bureaucratic obstacles, and logistical problems.
The most dangerous situation is with the people living along the contact line; they just cannot move to a safe place because of complex procedures for issuing permits for the movement. Significant facility problems take place in those areas not controlled by the government there are not banks here, failed trade system, no pensions or social assistance. In the areas controlled by the government, people are also deprived of many social services.
