Russia Ukraine Conflict: The people of Ukraine are being displaced in the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. The United Nations has said that 600,000 people have been displaced from Ukraine and most of them are women and children. According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, 600,000 people have left the country since Russia started the war on February 24, and 90 percent of them are women and children. Releasing the figures till May 11, the agency has claimed that a total of more than 6 lakh 29 thousand people have left the country. If the agency is to be believed, then these people are taking refuge in neighboring countries as well as Poland.
Why only women and children are leaving the country
90 percent of women and children are leaving the country from Ukraine, the main reason behind this is that there is a rule in the country that men from 18 to 60 serve in the army. At this time the country needs an army, so the percentage of men is less. Apart from this, according to a study by the International Organization for Migration, it has been revealed that 8 lakh people have been internally displaced.
