EAST UKRAINE – UNHCR says a ceasefire between eastern separatists and Kiev has reduced the number of casualties. However, the UN warned, a humanitarian crisis was unfolding in East Ukraine. The Ukraine conflict began when Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, and ended with the fall of the strategic railway hub of Debaltseve in Feb 2015. By that time the rebels had also seized Donetsk airport.
