UN: Armed Conflict Spawns Widespread Hunger in Ukraine's Eastern Region

  • Michael Eckels

The UN World Food Program has reported massive hunger in Ukraine's eastern Donbass region following two years of armed conflict. The WFP reports 1.5 million hungry people, which includes 300,000 in need of "immediate" food assistance. Despite hunger, children in the Donetsk region town of Amvrosiivka pass the time learning army tactics and weaponry with an eye toward a possible future in combat.
