Since the war began between Ukraine and the Russian Federation on February 24, 2022, according to a report released in June by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over 7 million people have been displaced – almost 5 million of which have been recorded across Europe.
What has been reported as the largest refugee crisis since World War II has become a far-reaching humanitarian disaster threatening economies across Europe. This crisis includes rising inflation and shortages of food and other goods. Donor support is still needed for relief and recovery efforts, but that need will eventually shift to the long-term rebuilding of Ukraine's economy and infrastructure.
