Dujarric said that in the last couple of weeks the UN had delivered about 1,400 shelter kits and 35,000 food kits to the Ukrainian authorities. The supplies were later distributed to the families affected by the war, living in villages of Kherson Oblast.

“Each food kit has enough food for one person for one month,” Dujarric said.

According to Ukrainian authorities, the main needs of people living in these areas include shelter, food, water and specific supplies for the cold season, which has already begun in Ukraine.
