United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said on May 12 that as so far more than 6 million people have now fled Ukraine in the wake of Russia’s invasion, and nearly 1.6 million refugees have returned to Ukraine, either partially or fully.

It expressed that number reflects cross-border activities and doesn’t necessarily indicate “sustainable” returns. The agency says it’s too early to draw conclusions about “definitive trends” on returns. Matthew Saltmarsh, an agency spokesman, also says that a total of 2.4 million people who have left Ukraine have moved beyond Ukraine’s immediate border countries. These countries have taken in the major share of refugees. Poland alone has registered more than 3.2 million people who fled Ukraine. Other European Union member countries have opened their borders, making it complex to track where people are going. In addition, UNHCR Filippo Grandi tweeted that the number of refugees from Ukraine had reached the same figures as the tally from Syria’s 11-year war, which previously was the source of the world’s biggest refugee crisis.
