The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has issued its weekly report on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine.
According to the data provided by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), 800,961 Ukrainians had sought asylum, residence permits or other forms of legal stay in neighboring countries.
The number of Ukrainian nationals seeking asylum, residence permits or other forms of legal stay in neighboring countries increased by about 23,600 people compared to the previous week, says the report.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Social Policy (MoSP) has also provided data on internally displaced persons (IDPs).
According to the report, there are 157,572 officially registered IDPs in Kharkiv Oblast (1,395 of them pregnant women) in need of food parcels, baby food and other food commodities.
Among the areas of major concern in conflict-affected regions are access to basic life-saving assistance and healthcare, including specialized medical services.
Local facilities lack the ambulances and other logistical capacity to provide emergency transportation for patients.
Electricity and water supplies have been completely disrupted in several cities in the conflict zone.
In some of the affected communities, schools and other educational facilities have sustained damage due to the conflict. Some schools have closed entirely, hampering children's access to education, as the facilities lack water, natural gas and basic sanitation. Other areas, near the front lines, lack school transport.
