Ukraine Russia War: One Child becoming a Refugee Every Second in Ukraine

According to the UN, 1.4 million children have fled Ukraine since the Russian invasion began on February 24, implying that approximately one child every second has become a refugee.
According to new data released Tuesday by the International Organization for Migrants (IOM), more than three million individuals have fled Ukraine. As a result, about half of them are youngsters.

“On average, over 70,000 children have become refugees in Ukraine every day over the previous 20 days,” James Elder, a spokesman for the UN children’s agency UNICEF, told reporters in Geneva.

“This crisis in terms of speed and scale is unparalleled since World War II,” he stated, adding that “this crisis in terms of speed and scale is unprecedented since World War II.”

Ukrainian children arriving in those border nations, like all children forced from their homeland by war and conflict, are at considerable danger of family separation, violence, sexual exploitation, and trafficking,” Elder cautioned.

He stated, “They are in severe need of safety, stability, and child protection programs.”
