Ukrainians who want to stay in the country of temporary residence are trying to integrate into the new society.

  • More than a million refugees who left for other countries since the beginning of the full-scale invasion have already returned to Ukraine. This was reported by Ugochi Daniels, Deputy Director General of the International Organization for Migration, to Hromadske Radio.

Within the country, 4.7 million people have already returned home. According to the IOM Deputy Director General, the Ukrainian government should attract about 4.5 million more people to the country over the next 10 years.

IOM believes that the Ukrainian diaspora and migrants from other countries can help rebuild Ukraine.

“Involvement of the diaspora will be significant, so there is no need to wait for the war’s end. People need to be involved now, particularly in humanitarian response projects,” says Ugochi Daniels.

Temporary protection for Ukrainians in the EU has been extended until March 2024. All Ukrainian citizens who want to stay in the country of temporary residence are being integrated into the new society.

According to the Kharkiv RMA, as of August 5, 2023, 183,466 internally displaced persons were officially registered in Kharkiv. This is more than 35% of all IDPs in the Kharkiv region. Most of the displaced persons live in the Shevchenkivskyi district of the city – 32,100 people. The number is somewhat lower in Saltivskyi district, which has sheltered 30,670 people.
