Millions of people continue to face dire humanitarian consequences in the forgotten armed conflict in eastern Ukraine.

 “Millions of men, women and children continue to face dire humanitarian consequences in Europe’s forgotten armed conflict in eastern Ukraine,” Ursula Mueller, the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, said at the UN Security Council, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

At the same time, she pointed to the elaboration of Ukraine’s national strategy for assistance to the internally displaced persons. “I welcome the recent adoption of the law on the status of missing persons and look forward to its implementation, which will facilitate the search for and identification of missing persons as well as help their families,” the diplomat said.

Mueller also reiterated the willingness of the UN and partners to “provide the displaced and conflict-affected persons in Ukraine with assistance in urgent matters and early recovery processes.”

As a reminder, the Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Missing Persons" entered into force on August 2. It defines the legal status of missing persons and ensures the legal regulation of relations connected with the establishment and records, search and social protection of such persons and their relatives.
