Over 14 million Ukrainians – mostly women and children – were forced to leave their homes the first 100 days of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, UN Crisis Coordinator for Ukraine Amin Awad said in a report published on June 3.

“(This is) a scale and speed of displacement not witnessed (before) in history,” said Awad.

The report suggests over three million children in the country had their education suspended, and hundreds of thousands of people have been left without power and water supply.

“15.7 million people are in need of humanitarian support now, with numbers growing,” the report said.
