Displacement in Ukraine

As a result of Russia’s military offensive against Ukraine, 6.2 million people are currently displaced within the country. To go beyond the numbers and provide more insights into their needs and living conditions, the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre partnered with RIWI to conduct a countrywide online survey.

Between April and early July 2022, over 8,000 survey responses were collected from Ukrainians using Random Domain Intercept Technology. This data was collected in order to better understand the prevalence of internal displacement in Ukraine and its impacts on the lives of internally displaced persons. Organizations working to support Ukrainians can leverage these insights to inform their aid strategies and distribution.

Here are some of the key findings:

  • More than 32% of respondents have been displaced
  • Nearly half of displaced respondents stayed with host families
  • More than 60% of internally displaced persons surveyed struggled to access basic goods and services
  • Two thirds of displaced respondents plan to remain in Ukraine
  • One fifth of non-displaced respondents expected to have to flee within a month
