And the number may increase

According to Matthew Saltmarsh, spokesman for the UNHCR, immigration has declined slightly since the beginning of the war.

Saltmarsh said 90 percent of those who left the country were women and children. In Ukraine, men between the ages of 18 and 60 can be called up for military service. In this situation, these people will not be able to leave the country. Significantly, the total population of Ukraine is about 40 million. It does not include the population of Crimea and the occupied eastern part of Russia.
