About 3.7 million Ukrainians cannot get humanitarian aid because of Russia

Since the beginning of this year, the United Nations and its partners have provided humanitarian aid to five million residents of Ukraine.

"The UN and humanitarian partners continue to respond to the dire consequences of the war, having reached over five million people with aid so far this year. There have been over 65 inter-agency convoys this year to frontline areas," Rosemary DiCarlo, Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs, said at the UN Security Council meeting on July 17, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

At the same time, she emphasized that Russia continued to obstruct the work of humanitarian agencies.

"Unfortunately, the continuing lack of humanitarian access to the Russian-controlled areas of Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions deprives an estimated 3.7 million people of much-needed assistance," the diplomat said.

As reported, the UN Security Council discussed Monday the situation in Ukraine amid the Russian war.
