KIEV, Dec 5 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The United Nation’s food agency said on Tuesday it will stop providing food aid to conflict-affected people in the eastern part of Ukraine in the next two months due to a lack of funding.
A World Food Programme (WFP) spokesperson said dwindling resources had made it increasingly difficult to maintain its operations in Ukraine.
The spokesperson said WFP will keep a limited presence there at least until mid-2018 and continue to monitor the situation.
