10. SOUNDBITE (English) Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees:
“They are facing big challenges, destroyed homes and buildings, lack of reliable shelter, accommodation, lack of work, lack of jobs because the, the economy of the country has been profoundly affected, naturally by this war. Trauma - people that have seen violence have been affected personally, have been separated from their family and the anxiety of being in exile, either in the country itself and for many of them, of course, as refugees abroad. But I have also seen a lot of strength, resilience and determination to carry on, to recover, to rebuild here in this very building that appears so damaged, people are already working to fix it, to make it habitable again.”
11. SOUNDBITE (English) Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees:
“We must not forget that, although we are in the middle of summer on a warm day, winter is just around the corner. And winters in Ukraine are very harsh and severe, extremely cold. So we must do everything possible to prevent the cold of winter from becoming the next challenge for people that already have to face so much in their lives.”
12. SOUNDBITE (English) Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees:
“This war is also having a ripple effect, a global ripple effect around the world. Inflation, high prices, food shortages that are creating deep food insecurity in many parts of the world, in the Middle East, in Africa and Asia, even as far as Latin America. And energy challenges. So all these impacts, all these effects of the Russian invasion and of the war in Ukraine, happened in places where there were already big humanitarian crises, big refugee crises. So my appeal is, as we continue to help the Ukrainians and we must do so, let's not forget about all those other places, all those other people that are equally suffering and deserve our attention, our resources, our support and our solidarity.”

STORYLINE:

The war in Ukraine has caused civilian casualties and destruction of civilian infrastructure, forcing people to flee their homes seeking safety, protection and assistance. Millions of refugees from Ukraine have crossed borders into neighbouring countries, and many more have been forced to move inside the country.

The devastating impact of the war is expected to grow with time. People are struggling to rebuild damaged homes, reunite with their families, recover from the deep-set trauma of what they have experienced and regain their jobs and incomes in an environment of rising prices and fuel shortages.

Whilst the situation of the refugees from Ukraine and displaced and war-affected people inside Ukraine is no longer as prominent in the news as it was during the first months of the war, the humanitarian and protection needs remain. The people of Ukraine need continued support and commitment to help them recover, especially as a harsh winter is expected to bring with it even more suffering.
