The U.N. World Food Programme spokesperson informed that the organization is to stop providing food aid to civilian people in Donbas, according to Reuters.

The decision came as the Programme doesn’t have enough funds to continue the support.

“WFP’s operation to provide food assistance to vulnerable, conflict-affected people in the eastern part of Ukraine will continue for another two months of the winter and will then come to an end,” the spokesman said.

As the same time, the Programme will continue its limited presence in the region to monitor the situation until mid-2018.

As we reported earlier, UN resident coordinator Neal Walker said that although the UN planned to allocate $204 million to civilians in Donbas in 2017, as of November 21, it was implemented only by 28%, or $56 million.
