More than 1.8 million children have moved to neighboring countries as refugees.

2.5 million children have become internally displaced persons within Ukraine.

“The war has caused one of the fastest mass displacements of children since World War II. It is a grim milestone that could have lasting consequences for future generations. The safety, well-being of children, and access to basic services are under threat of continuing horrific violence,” said Catherine Russell – UNICEF Executive Director.
