(UN News Centre) – The conflict in Ukraine has deeply affected the lives of 580,000 children living in non-government controlled areas and close to the front line in the east of the country, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said today, highlighting that 200,000 of them – or one in three – need psychosocial support. “Two years of violence, shelling and fear have left an indelible mark on thousands of children in eastern Ukraine,” Giovanna Barberis, a UNICEF representative in the eastern European nation, said in a press release.
