Overview

25/05/2022

Conflict in Ukraine re-escalated on 24 February 2022, when the Russian forces entered the country, advancing towards different Ukrainian cities in a full-scale military operation. Heavy clashes between Russian and Ukrainian forces and shelling led to civilians casualities. Shelling has also significantly affected homes, public buildings, and other critical infrastructure, including schools, hospitals, roads, and railways.? 

Insecurity forced at least 6.59 million people to leave their homes and seek safety in neighbouring countries, including Poland, Romania, Moldova, Slovakia, and Hungary. Over 8 million people are estimated to be displaced within Ukraine.? 

Over 966,000 people fled Ukraine to Romania as at 23 May. Romania is also a transit country for many fleeing conflict: some Ukrainians and non-Ukrainians crossed into Romania to travel to other countries or go back to their countries of origin. Some of the displaced people are sheltering in camps and reception centres in northern Romania. Humanitarian organisations, the Romanian Government, and local organisations are conducting needs assessments and providing emergency assistance to the displaced, including shelter, food, and NFIs.?
