The UN World Food Program (WFP) will suspend the provision of food aid to residents of the East of Ukraine. A spokesman for WFP said on Tuesday, December 5, that the dwindling resources had made it increasingly difficult for the agency to maintain its operations in Ukraine.

"WFP operation to provide food assistance to vulnerable, conflict-affected people in the eastern part of Ukraine will continue for another two months of the winter," said the WFP representative.

The World Food Program is a structural unit of the United Nations and the world's largest humanitarian organization.

In late November, it was reported that the Red Cross has sent in ORDO 236 tons of humanitarian aid.
