UNHCR Reveals There Are Nearly 4.2 Million Ukrainian Refugees

Since the start of the war in Ukraine on February 24th, some 4.2 million Ukrainians have fled the country, with almost 40,000 refugees registering in neighboring countries, according to the latest figures from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

These figures show that women and children make up 90 percent of those who have left Ukraine since men between the ages of 18 and 60 qualifying for military service are unable to leave.

In addition to Ukrainian refugees, some 200,000 non-Ukrainians have also left Ukraine, who were living, working, or studying in the country before the war began, according to the United Nations International Organization for Migration (IOM).The IOM announced that as of mid-March, an estimated 6.48 million people have been displaced within Ukraine. The war brings the total number of people displaced to more than 10 million, about a quarter of Ukraine’s total population.At the end of March, the UN children’s agency UNICEF said that more than half of the country’s 7.5 million children have been displaced; 2.5 million internally and two million abroad.
