On 26 May 2022, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that as the war enters its fourth month, fighting remains focused on eastern Ukraine, while there continue to be daily reports of airstrikes and shelling in many other regions.
Humanitarian conditions worsen in both eastern and southern Ukraine, with ongoing, wide-scale disruptions in electricity, water and gas supplies.
The World Food Programme has renewed its call to open Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea to allow for the export of food amid fears of global hunger and further crises.
As of 19 May, the UN and humanitarian partners have reached nearly 6.9 million people in need across Ukraine.
Over 6 million people received food assistance and 2 million health-related support from the UN and humanitarian partners since 24 February.
