The majority of Ukrainians who have fled and sought shelter in neighboring countries are women and children. President Zelenskyy declared martial law after Russia attacked Ukraine, preventing men between the ages of 18 and 60 from leaving the country. The EU appealed to all 27 member nations to grant refuge to Ukrainians for up on years. “I believe we will have to prepare for millions,” said EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Ylva Johansson when asked whether the EU would accept hundreds of thousands or millions of people fleeing violence in other parts of Africa (DW). Most of the refugees have fled to Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Moldova and Romania.
