I remember sometime ago when I raised concerns about Ukraine’s crises and warned about ‘Ukraine producing refugees‘, a situation we might not want to see. Since then, I’ve been following the situation in Ukraine, the twists and turns of the crises and its effect on ordinary citizens. Now, I see my fears playing out exactly as I imagined it.
Let me briefly highlight the current situation in Ukraine:
The United Nations has warned of a ‘mass exodus’ from Ukraine owing to the crises and insecurity in the country’s East. There has been a sharp increase in the number of displaced persons in the country. At least 117,000 people have fled their homes and are currently displaced due to the conflict in eastern Ukraine. The United Nations agency for refugees (UNHCR) says that about 730,000 Ukrainians have left the country for Russia this year.
