Emergency Assistance for civil unrest and internally displaced people (IDP) and civil unrest in Ukraine

6 June 2014

 

  1. On June 6, the Government of Japan decided to provide emergency assistance of about 26 million JPY for the civil unrest and the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Crimea and the eastern part of Ukraine, through the United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
  2. The number of refugees in Ukraine from Crimea has been steadily increasing since the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation. There is also a concern of increased internal displacement within Ukraine because of the turbulence in the eastern part of the country.
  3. Japan expects that the aforementioned assistance will contribute to the stability of Ukraine.
