This year Germany is to allocate $1 million for the humanitarian aid by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (the UNHCR), as Ernst Reichel informed, according to Radio Svoboda.

“Day after day we advocate for the end of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine. Solidarity also means that we have to help people who need our support, pragmatically and quickly. I am happy that we can announce allocating this vital help right before the World Humanitarian Day, which is marked on August 19,” Reichel said.

It is noted that the help is directed to the needs of people, who require special protection, and suffer substantially because of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine: people with disabilities, IDPs, etc.

As it was reported earlier, more than 1,5 million of internally displaced people are still struggling in Ukraine.
