Eastern Ukraine: A Dangerous Winter

Europe Report N°235, 18 December 2014

Ukrainian forces' tank rides on December 11, 2014 in the village of Tonenke, in Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine.

Winter in Ukraine is injecting further uncertainty into an already volatile conflict. After well over 5,000 deaths and eight months of war, eastern Ukraine – particularly the separatist-held parts of Donetsk and Luhansk – now runs the risk of a humanitarian crisis. All parties involved in the conflict should refrain from offensive operations, concentrating instead on helping the population survive the winter, and laying the groundwork for a political settlement.
