Where are people fleeing inside Ukraine?

The UN's International Organisation for Migration (IOM) said at the start of May that more than eight million people were internally displaced.

The IOM said:

  • 23% of refugees were from the Kharkiv region, 20% from Kyiv, and 17% from the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine

  • 27% had left their homes because they had been damaged or attacked in the war

It estimates that more than half of the people who are internally displaced are women. Many are particularly vulnerable because they are pregnant, have a disability or are a victim of violence.

The UN is working alongside other organizations to provide cash, food, and other supplies.
