Homelessness in Ukraine

The unprovoked Russian aggression in Ukraine and consequently the resulting high number of exiled people searching for protection in Europe are very closely linked to homelessness. Since the entry of the Russian army into Ukraine on the 24th of February 2022, at least 12 million people have fled their homes, with over 5 million arriving in neighbouring countries. While we are still in the process of taking stock of the war’s impact on homelessness, both in Ukraine and in Europe, this issue of the ‘Homeless in Europe’ magazine contributes to a better understanding of the current situation.
