More than 7.1 million Ukrainians have been internally displaced as a result of Russia’s invasion, according to the United Nations.

According to the United Nations, more than 7.1 million people have been internally displaced by Russia’s war in Ukraine, having fled their homes yet remained in the nation.

On February 24, Russia invaded Ukraine, forcing millions of people to abandon their homes, including over 4.2 million Ukrainians who have left the nation totally.

The new figure from the UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM) is higher than the 6.48 million internally displaced individuals (IDPs) reported by the IOM in a March 16 research.

“People continue to evacuate their homes as a result of fighting, and humanitarian needs on the ground continue to rise,” IOM Director General Antonio Vitorino stated.

“Humanitarian corridors are urgently needed to allow for the safe evacuation of civilians as well as the safe transit and distribution of desperately needed humanitarian aid to those who have been internally displaced.”
