Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022 resulted in a large wave of migration, leading to the displacement of nearly 7 million people, or 16% of the Ukrainian population – including more than half of the child population.
In addition, 6.1 million people were displaced within their country.
Neighboring European countries, but not only, have welcomed people fleeing the war.
POLAND: 3.6 million Ukrainian refugees
ITALY: 110,000 Ukrainian refugees
FRANCE: 100,000 Ukrainian refugees
BELGIUM: 35,000 Ukrainian refugees
UNITED KINGDOM: 84,000 Ukrainian refugees
As the conflict enters its second year and its resolution still seems remote, Ukraine and its citizens will require significant support for reconstruction.
The World Bank estimates the cost of rebuilding the country over the next 10 years at $411 billion.
To date, Poland and Italy have particularly emphasized their support through the mobilization of the private sector and the development of commercial and industrial partnerships.
