" On the humanitarian side, our colleagues tell us that more than 6.4 million people have been reached in Ukraine with vital assistance since the war started on 24 February. This includes more than 5.7 million people who have been able to put food on their table, thanks to the UN and our humanitarian partners. Cash assistance has been provided to over 655,000 people allowing them to cover some of their most basic needs. More than 1.5 million people have received healthcare support, and around 352,000 people have been provided with clean water and hygiene products. We have also reached nearly 430,000 people with protection services, psychosocial support, and critical legal services, including support to internally displaced persons. Our humanitarian colleagues note that, despite this remarkable scale-up, many more people urgently need support, including those living in areas experiencing heavy fighting in both Government and non-Government-controlled areas of the country. As emphasized by the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Joyce Msuya, to the Security Council yesterday, the UN urges parties to the conflict to remove any barriers to the movement of humanitarian staff to ensure the continued delivery of life-saving assistance across Ukraine.
