OSCE Special Minitoring Mission reports on a serious humanitarian crisis in so-called Donetsk People's Republic, particularly, lack of food and lack of access to health services. This was stated by Alexander Hug, Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine, during the briefing, UNN.
"The humanitarian situation in eastern Ukraine remains difficult. In some towns and villages we observed a lack of food, gas and electricity. Tens of thousands of people live in areas controlled by "DPR" and have no access to health services," noted Alexander Hug.
Iryna Herashchenko, President Petro Poroshenko's envoy for his Peace plan for Eastern Ukraine, the Russian-backed militants on the occupied territories are not capable to respond on the basic needs of the locals. For example, critically ill children from the house of orphans are not evacuated from the occupied territory of the Luhansk region.
As it was reported two days ago, Russian-backed rebels hold off 16 tons of international humanitarian assistance to the occupied territories of Donbas. Also they did not let 8 trucks with humanitarian assistance from the International Committee of the Red Cross to the occupied territories of East Ukraine on September 25.
