UNHCR currently predicts up to 8 million people will be displaced inside Ukraine, and that 4 million refugees are expected to move to bordering countries as a consequence of the ongoing offensive.
Approximately 3 million people were already in need of humanitarian assistance before the invasion, a figure which is expected to rise exponentially. Children and the elderly are particularly affected.
The escalation of conflict in Ukraine comes amidst a surge of COVID-19 cases in the country, where the number of active cases surged by 555% between 15 January and 25 February.
We echo concerns from the international community regarding civilian casualties and welcome the response of countries to accept refugees.
