UN: More than 10 million people have fled Ukraine since war began

More than 10 million people from Ukraine have crossed the border into neighbouring countries since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion.

The UN Refugee Agency's tally has recorded a total of 10,107,957 border crossings from Ukraine since the war began, EU Observer informs.

As noted, nearly four million have applied for temporary residence in a neighbouring country. More than 1.2 million Ukrainian refugees are currently residing in Poland — many of them being hosted as guests in the homes of Polish citizens.

“Many refugees from Ukraine have also been forcibly sent to Russia, where they face human-rights abuses. The UN recorded nearly two million border crossings from Ukraine to Russia,” reads the report.

"It is one of the largest forced displacement crises since World War II, and certainly the fastest," reads the latest UNHCR's Global Trends report.

As reported, 370,000 Ukrainian refugees were employed in Poland under a simplified procedure as of August 3.
