The UN announced a million refugees from Ukraine in a week
In the week since the start of the full-scale invasion and the war of Russia against Ukraine, 1 million people left the country. This was announced on Twitter by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi.
“In just seven days, we witnessed the departure of a million refugees from Ukraine to neighboring countries,” he wrote.
The UN representative also called for a ceasefire in Ukraine.
In just seven days we have witnessed the exodus of one million refugees from Ukraine to neighbouring countries.
For many millions more, inside Ukraine, it’s time for guns to fall silent, so that life-saving humanitarian assistance can be provided.
