Over 5.7 million Ukrainian citizens have fled to the EU since the beginning of the war in February, according to new data from the European border and coast guard agency, Frontex.
During the same period, around 2.8 million Ukrainians have exited the EU towards their home country. While the number of returning Ukrainians has remained stable over the past weeks, between June 8 and 14, more Ukrainians were recorded entering the EU than returning to Ukraine.
The number of Ukrainians entering the EU from Russia and Belarus has remained constant. From June 8 to 14, around 1,470 Ukrainian citizens arrived in the EU through Belarus and 7,400 through Russia.
In total, around 6.6 million entries to the EU have been recorded after February at border crossing points from Ukraine and Moldova to Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, and Romania, excluding entries made by Moldovan and Romanian nationals.
Romanian and Polish borders continue to experience most movements. Land routes to transport grain out of Ukraine are operating through border crossing points in the two countries, which has resulted in lorry queues of up to 20 kilometers.
Frontex continues to monitor refugee flows to facilitate border crossings and support evacuation corridors. The agency currently has 278 staff deployed to countries bordering Ukraine.
