'Thousands' of ceasefire violations every month in Ukraine point to a 'forgotten' conflict

23 April 2018

The United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Ukraine believes the grinding four-year conflict in the east is being “forgotten” with thousands of ceasefire violations being recorded each month.

Neal Walker, who’s also the UN Development Programme’s (UNDP) Representative, said in an interview with UN News that he was doing all he could to raise awareness, and secure vital funding to keep aid flowing to thousands of displaced civilians.

Nargiz Shekinskaya asked Mr. Walker for the latest on how fighting was affecting mains water supplies across eastern Ukraine.
