But at the same time, a few meters away, there are families in tears because they're leaving brothers and fathers who will stay.

STORYLINE:

Speaking from a train station in the Ukrainian city of Lviv, a UNICEF spokesperson said only way to avoid the “exodus of people and keep families together is of course with support and is, of course, for the conflict to end.”

UNICEF Spokesperson James Elder said today (01 Mar) was the “first day [he was] seeing some smiles, some relief from people as they're getting on a train to Poland.” He said many of the displaced moved from bunkers and spent the night in the city’s train station as they moved out to Poland.

Edler said, “At the same time, a few meters away, there are families in tears because they're leaving brothers and fathers who will stay. The only way we can avoid this exodus of people and keep families together is of course with support and is, of course, for the conflict to end.”

UNICEF said escalating conflict in Ukraine poses an immediate and growing threat to the lives and well-being of the country’s 7.5 million children. Humanitarian needs are multiplying – and spreading by the hour. UNICEF noted that children have been killed, wounded, and are being profoundly traumatized by the violence all around them. Hundreds of thousands of people are on the move, and family members are becoming separated from their loved ones.

UNICEF stressed that the past eight years of conflict in eastern Ukraine have inflicted profound and lasting damage to children on both sides of the line of contact and underscored that this suffering is now extending across the country. UNICEF said hundreds of thousands are without safe water, electricity or water due to damage to infrastructure, adding that it is working to scale up humanitarian delivery in the east and expanding across the country as needed.
