The State Border Service of Ukraine observes an increase in the number of Ukrainians returning home from abroad, according to the speaker of the agency, Andriy Demchenko, who announced this at a briefing.

“Recently, we have also recorded an increase in Ukrainian citizens who are returning home. In the first days, generally, about 15,000 citizens of Ukraine crossed the border, moving in the direction of entry into Ukraine. At the moment, this number is about 25,000-30,000 people per day,” he explained.

Demchenko added that most crossings take place on the border with the Republic of Poland.

According to the latest UN data, more than 4.3 million Ukrainians have gone abroad, and about 10 million people have become internally displaced persons.

A recent Sociological Group “Rating” poll found that a third of Ukrainians, who left their homes since the start of a full-scale Russian invasion, plan to return soon.
