Three months after the Russian invasion in late February 2022, an estimated 16 million Ukrainians, displaced from their homes or struggling to survive under extreme conflict conditions, urgently require humanitarian assistance. What amounts to a massive, sudden-onset emergency involving high risks for aid operations has brought challenges both new and familiar to the international aid system. Although the situation continues to change daily, some key features and issues of the evolving aid response have come into view. This brief describes the state of the humanitarian response in Ukraine in the first quarter of the invasion.
