Description : Destructions caused by hostilities as well as lack of maintenance of essential installations is not rare along the line of contact in Eastern Ukraine. Repair teams take important risks to make sure water and gas pipes or electricity lines are back to functioning again. The ICRC stands ready, whenever needed, to act as a neutral intermediary and accompany the repair teams in the area of the contact line.

ICRC website photo gallery “Eastern Ukraine: The lasting scars of conflict”, 19 January 2017
“Ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine is leaving lasting scars on people and their livelihoods. Ruined houses, damaged infrastructure, closed schools are among consequences of the hostilities. People living in villages along the contact line struggle through these difficult times enduring under perpetual risk of shelling or mine explosions.
Despite the threat, our teams are dedicated to help communities on both sides of the contact line to survive the conflict and to cope with its lasting consequences.”
