Russia and Ukraine Await New Round of Negotiations

Many European Union member countries opened their borders to Ukrainian citizens on February 24, when Russia launched its military operation. More than half of the 874 026 Ukrainians fled to Poland, considering Hungary and Moldova as second and third choices.

During the first week of the Russian operation, at least 42 000 Ukrainians crossed the borders to Russia, and about 96 000 people were evacuated in areas in eastern Ukraine the days after Russia launched a special military operation in Donbass.

According to Russia's government, troops have been sent to protect the people in separatist-held areas in the east.
