Information on the situation in Ukraine

For persons inside of Ukraine, UNHCR advises you to:

  • Stay informed and connected (via radio, TV, Internet) and follow official advice for your security. Listen to official messages from emergency services, local authorities, and follow the instructions, including regarding curfews.
  • Keep a copy (even digital) of your documents in a safe place. The replacement of lost documents will be easier if people can present a copy to the SMS later.
  • For advice on how to provide emotional support to children during these difficult times, see pages such as this.

UNHCR is doing its utmost to ensure that its services and assistance are continued and strengthened. For more information, please see our HELP page in Ukraine:
