The security situation in Ukraine remains relatively stable, although there are frequent days and nights of air alerts. However, markets, restaurants and cafes are open and life continues as normal. There is a strict curfew, the hours depend on the region. There have been a few ballistic missile and drone attacks since the beginning of the war on the airport, military and logistical facilities on the outskirts, as well as a few hits on the city centers against administrative and logistical buildings. More recently, the majority of attacks have targeted energy structures, mainly power grid and power plants, which reduces the supply of electricity, water, heating system, and communication networks.

HI has 2 hubs, one in the East (based in Dnipro) and one in the West and the coordination is in Kyiv. We have activities in other cities like Lviv, Kharkiv, Poltava, Mikolaw. HI staff is accommodated in guesthouses or in a hotel (depending on the location), usually near HI offices, restaurants, cafes, shopping centers within walking distance and near a shelter (the shelter is either in the building or very easy to reach).

Movements between sites can be made by car (Hi drivers) or by train, depending of the region and time.
