Ukraine urges its refugees not to come home until spring
Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk advised Ukrainians who left the country because of the war not to come home this winter:
Since October 10, the Russian military has conducted massive air strikes on Ukrainian cities and the country’s critical infrastructure. 30–40 percent of Ukraine’s power plants were damaged as a result.
According to the United Nations’ Ukraine Emergency data, as of the middle of September, more than 12.6 million people had left Ukraine since the start of the Russian invasion. More than 5 million have already returned to Ukraine.
