Thousands in need of humanitarian aid in Ukraine

World Today

The fighting in eastern Ukraine is taking a staggering toll on its citizens. More than 340,000 people have fled their homes.

That number is still growing as living conditions in cities like Donetsk deteriorate rapidly. The rising death toll happens as the people of Donetsk have gone three days so far without water. Supplies were cut off due to shelling damage.  CCTV’s Kate Parkinson reports.
