Conflict in Ukraine : socio-economic impacts of internal displacement and veteran return – summary report May 2017 (English)

As the conflict in eastern Ukraine enters its fourth year, ongoing violence continues to cast a long shadow over Ukraine's overall development prospects as well as the lives and livelihoods of millions of Ukrainians. Over 10,000 individuals have been killed, 2.7 million persons displaced, and over 4 million people in the eastern Donbas region of the country have been directly affected by continuing hostilities. Severe humanitarian impacts remain, particularly in non-Government controlled areas and along the 'contact line' which separates Government controlled and non-Government controlled areas of Ukraine. However, these immediate needs are increasingly accompanied by mid-to long-term development challenges as the conflict becomes protracted.
