STORYLINE:

The UN refugee agency (UNCHR) said it is mobilizing resources to respond as quickly and effectively as possible to people fleeing military offensive in Ukraine.

Around 660,000 refugees have now fled Ukraine to neighboring countries in the past six days, according to the latest government data compiled by the agency.

At this rate, the situation looks set to become Europe’s largest refugee crisis this century, and UNHCR is mobilizing resources to respond as quickly and effectively as possible.

All neighboring countries have to date commendably kept their borders open for refugees fleeing Ukraine. Most have fled to Poland, Hungary, Moldova, Romania, Slovakia, while others have moved towards various other European countries. A sizeable number has also moved to the Russian Federation.

National authorities are assuming responsibility for the registration, reception, accommodation and protection of these refugees.

Joanna, a Polish Volunteer, said she was willing to help in everything that was needed.

"So like yesterday, I've separated the clothes, I translated, I was managing the kids, I tried to find the clothes for the people. So everything. I helped with the food, I helped to seperate the people at the border that are going to other places and help people that eat over here. Children want sweets, etc. Everything. Preparing the food, clean up. Multifunction,” she said.

UNHCR has a long-standing presence in the region, including in Poland, Hungary, Moldova, Slovakia and Romania, and is coordinating the refugee response with other UN agencies and NGO partners, in support of national authorities.

The agency is reinforcing its operations by urgently sending more resources, staff and relief items, while preparing to provide cash assistance via cards as needed.

UNHCR child welfare and protection specialists are also ready to support national authorities.
