The report also found that the conflict has had a devastating impact on the health of those affected. Since the start of the conflict, there has been a significant increase in the number of people suffering from mental health issues, such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. The report also found that the conflict has displaced more than 1.5 million people, with many of them living in overcrowded and inadequate conditions.
The report also highlighted the economic impact of the conflict. It estimated that the conflict has cost the Ukrainian economy more than $30 billion, with the majority of the losses coming from the disruption of trade and the destruction of infrastructure.
The report concluded that the conflict has had a devastating impact on the people of Ukraine, both in terms of human life and economic losses. It is a stark reminder of the human cost of war and the need for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
