3,4 million people require humanitarian assistance in Donbas region, despite the annual assistance provided to over one million residents of Eastern Ukraine. This was reported on the Twitter page of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

"Since the start of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine, the humanitarian community has been able to reach over one million people each year,” the message reads.

It is also noted that this is less than half of all people in need - funding remains critical for reaching all those who depend on the UN.

As we reported earlier, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) found out that half of Ukrainians who fought in the Donbas conflict suffer from discrimination. This data is unveiled in the social survey, as Deutsche Welle informed. 

"50 percent of Ukrainians who fought in Donbas, face discrimination in the society upon returning home. Every third of those who had the job before the war lost it in spite of the legal procedure. And the incomes of their families are smaller than the average income in Ukraine", reads the survey released in Kyiv on January 23.
