After weeks of tensions and escalating conflict in eastern Ukraine, Russian troops entered the country on 24 February. Not only Donbass area and Kiev where reported being targeted but major attacks have been reported across all Ukraine spreading widespread fear and panic that forced many people into shelters and displacement. More than 3 million people have been estimated being displaced from their homes.
The Government declared martial law and imposed a nightly curfew. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy decreed a universal mobilization of conscripts and reservists to support the Armed Forces, banning men between 18 and 60 years old from leaving the country.
At 27 Feb 2022 more than 200k people have crossed the Poland border and more than 100k the Romanian one. The different reports collected in first hosting countries refers an important demand for a first humanitarian aid at the borders. People fleeing in these first days seems rapidly transiting from first hosting countries in order to reach final destinations. In addition fact the vast majority of the current de facto refugee population in Romania and Poland are moving fast to other countries. The acute needs remain for the moment at cross border points where people is spending days in order to be able to go on the other side.
In Leopoli the conflict has not been so dramatic as in other parts of the country but, due to the proximity with the border, this location has been the destination for many IDPs that left the eastern part of the country.
The ongoing conflict continues to have severe human costs, causing a growing number of civilian casualties, interrupting livelihoods and damaging critical civilian infrastructure, including hundreds of homes, water and sanitation infrastructure, schools and health facilities.
