29 September 2023
Between 24 February 2022 and 27 August 2023, over 17,200 civilians were injured in Russian missile attacks. Frontline hospitals are reporting shortages of medicines and medical consumables. Because of complicated and time-consuming public procurement processes, many medical supplies in these hospitals are being collected by volunteers or through donations.

05 September 2023
The authorities have evacuated almost 1,500 people, including 340 children, from across Kupiansk city and 53 settlements of Kupianskyi raion in Kharkiv oblast. Intensified hostilities since early August 2023 have significantly deteriorated living conditions. The majority of evacuated people are arriving in Kharkiv city and need shelter, food, water, hygiene, and household items. Many are traumatised and require therapy. Most of the arrivals are women and children, with older people and people with disabilities more likely to remain behind. The widespread destruction of facilities and lack of medicine or personnel in Kupianskyi raion are extremely constraining access to health services. Markets have also been largely disrupted. Repeated attacks limit access to water and energy supply despite continuous repairs. The Ukrainian forces retook the areas under evacuation in September 2022. These areas have faced increased shelling since the start of August 2023, when Russian forces mounted a new attack.

Of the 33 million tonnes of agricultural products exported from Ukraine through the grain deal since 2022, 725,000 tonnes went to WFP food programmes alone. Following delays in inspection and the blocking of one port, Russia did not extend the grain deal on 17 July, causing an immediate surge in global food prices on the same day.

09 June 2023
The flooding that followed the explosion of the Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine on 6 June 2023 has caused the displacement of at least 17,000 people. Water supply disruption alone could affect over one million people. IDPs need clean drinking water, shelter, healthcare, and cash assistance. (ACAPS 09/06/2023)
