Update on Internally Displaced People Figures in Ukraine: 5 April 2022


The latest round of IOM’s survey was completed and presented on 5 April, leading to the updated population figure of 7.1 million IDPs in Ukraine (10% increase compared to the previous round). The second round also observed an increase of IDPs coming from Northern areas (Sumy, Zhytomyr, Chernihiv) and Kyiv.

It is worth noting the remarkable ongoing efforts by Ukrainian authorities to expedite the registration of IDPs through their Unified IDP Registry, administered by the Ministry of Social Policy. The Government registration system has been in place since 2014 but was not initially enforced after the war started due to high numbers of new IDP arrivals and overstretched capacities in areas receiving IDPs.
