After a military offensive by the Russian Federation began on February 24, 2022, Ukraine’s situation quickly worsened. At least eight regions, including the capital city of Kyivska oblast and the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, which were already in conflict, saw an increase in armed violence.

That has caused an immediate and sharp rise in humanitarian needs. The UN says 12 million people inside Ukraine will need help and protection. More than 4 million Ukrainian refugees may need help and protection in neighboring countries in the coming months. On March 1, 2022, the United Nations and its humanitarian partners sent out coordinated Flash Appeals for a total of $1.7 billion to help people in Ukraine and refugees in neighboring countries right away.

Refugee children in Ukraine

The latest numbers from the Associated Press show that the Russian invasion has forced more than half of Ukraine’s 7.5 million children to leave their homes. Of the 4.8 million children forced to move, 2 million are looking for safety in other countries.

Russia is said to be taking children who are in danger.

Russia keeps adding to the list of terrible things it has done. Several unconfirmed reports, including one from Ukraine’s ambassador to the UN, said that Russian troops took 121,000 children from the shelled city of Mariupol and moved them to the Russian city of Taganrog to speed up the adoption process.

As long as the war goes on, it will seriously threaten the safety of children who have lost their parents.
