3.9M Ukrainians fled abroad over the past month
Over the past month, a total of 3.9 million Ukrainians have fled abroad, and 6.5 million Ukrainians have become internally displaced persons.
The relevant statement was made by Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator Joyce Msuya at a meeting of the UN Security Council in New York, which was dedicated to the humanitarian situation in Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
Msuya noted that, according to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, as of March 27, 2022, a total of 1,119 Ukrainians died, including 99 children. Meanwhile, these numbers are conservative and the tolls are far greater as the data from the areas affected by hostilities are received with a delay.
According to Msuya, the residents across many Ukrainian cities lack food, water, medicine, electricity, and heating.
“They are trapped. Desperate. Afraid. In some neighborhoods, it’s not even safe to bury the dead,” Msuya stressed.
