Almost 11 million Ukrainians are displaced or left the country because of war
According to the Head of Verkhovna Rada Committee on Human Rights, Deoccupation and Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine, Dmytro Lubinets, almost 11 million Ukrainians became internally displaced people or left the country due to the war.
“There are many more challenges now. If we talked about internally displaced persons (IDP) from the territory of the temporarily occupied Donetsk and Luhansk regions since 2014, then it was about 1.5 million IDPs. Currently, this figure is about 11 million citizens. Of these, 4 million people left Ukraine. And 7 million people have been displaced inside our country,” he said.
According to Lubinets, the Committee and the Ministry of Reintegration of Ukraine work jointly on launching new humanitarian programs for IDPs’ adaptation.
