“Meanwhile, living conditions for all Ukrainians have continued to deteriorate. Over half a million people remain without gas and electricity due to damage to critical infrastructure, especially in the east. People in Mariupol continue to lack access to safe drinking water. And prices of food and basic goods in non-Government-controlled areas of Luhanska oblast are reported to be on the rise.”

“On the response front, the UN has reached 11 million people with some kind of assistance as of 20 July. More good news is that the OCHA-managed Humanitarian Fund allocated $25 million earlier this week. These funds will support Ukrainians living in damaged homes, and those with limited access to gas and water supplies. We have also so far received over 90 per cent, or $2 billion, of the funds required under the current six-month Appeal. We thank all our donors, including the UN Member States, private individuals and businesses, for their trust and for supporting our life-saving work.”

STORYLINE:

As the war in Ukraine enters its sixth month this Sunday, fighting on the ground remains concentrated in the eastern Donetska oblast, but air attacks are continuing to impact civilians elsewhere, a UN spokesperson informed.

Briefing journalists today (22 July) in New York, UN Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq said that, according to the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the city of Mykolaiv in southern Mykolaivska oblast is under daily attacks.

The UN humanitarian partners also confirmed that a large warehouse of humanitarian aid supplies was severely damaged in a missile strike yesterday. The warehouse was storing at least 100 tons of food supplies.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson said, living conditions for all Ukrainians have continued to deteriorate.
Currently, over half a million people remain without gas and electricity due to damage to critical infrastructure, especially in the east.

Haq told journalists that “people in Mariupol continue to lack access to safe drinking water” and “prices of food and basic goods in non-Government-controlled areas of Luhanska oblast are reported to be on the rise.”

On the response front, the UN has reached 11 million people with some kind of assistance as of 20 July.

The spokesperson also informed that the OCHA-managed Humanitarian Fund allocated $25 million earlier this week.

These funds, haq said, “will support Ukrainians living in damaged homes, and those with limited access to gas and water supplies.”

So far, the UN has received over 90 percent, or $2 billion, of the funds required under the current six-month Appeal.

The organization thanks all donors, including the UN Member States, private individuals and businesses, for their trust and for supporting this life-saving work.
