The armed conflict in Ukraine, particularly in Eastern Ukraine, caused internal displacement in 2015. Affected populations were in need of humanitarian assistance with regards to protection, access to basic services, and livelihoods support. The humanitarian response in Ukraine – as a middle-income country – was mainly based on the do-no-harm principle. While the strategy envisioned different scenarios for the situation in Ukraine, the strategy designed its actions in a fashion that supported a swift and sustainable transition towards a post-conflict situation.
