During the war, more than 10 million people were evacuated from Ukraine. Such data are provided by the United Nations Agency for Refugees.
According to the organization's estimates, since the beginning of the war, the Ukrainian border has been crossed 10,321,348 times. More than 5 million people went to Poland, about a million - to Hungary, the same number to Romania and Germany. Also, about 2 million people ended up in Russia. The Russian side calls these people refugees, but in fact many of them were forcibly taken to Russia.
“This is one of the biggest displacement crises since World War II, and by far the fastest,” says the latest report from the Refugee Agency.
Due to the war in Ukraine, as well as military coups in Burkina Faso and Myanmar, more than 100 million people have been forced to flee their homes this year. This was the first time in history that such an indicator has been recorded. Thus, 1 in 78 people in the world were forced to flee violence, war, famine, prosecution or poverty.
