The humanitarian aid includes sleeping bags, solar lamps, bed linen, blankets, dishes, and other items necessary for people affected by the occupation.

Syniehubov adds that the UN has already provided humanitarian aid to residents of the liberated territories of Kharkiv Oblast. Last week, 10 vans with construction materials, quick repair kits, medicines, clothes, hygiene products, heaters, etc. were handed over to Kupiansk.

The UN Development Programme has already handed over about 270 items of goods and household appliances: microwave ovens, kettles, refrigerators, washing machines, and electric stoves for creating comfortable living conditions in the dormitories for internally displaced persons.
