The Head of Estonian Refugee Council Kristina Kallas, who just returned from Ukraine, said that the situation there is deteriorating rapidly as the refugee camps are not ready for the winter.

The official number of internal refugees in Ukraine is 379,000, growing by about 1,000 people every week. The estimates of the actual number of people displaced by the conflict are, however, much greater.

Kallas, who visited Zaporizhia and Dnipropetrovsk districts, told Eesti Päevaleht that most of the refugees are either women with children, the elderly or the the disabled. "Most of them are placed in temporary camps that are not adapted for living and so have neither heating nor electricity. The key question is what will happen when the winter arrives," she said.

She added that there are also problems with the supply of medications and this is one are where Estonia could offer assistance, perhaps by housing chronically ill children in Estonia over the winter.
