Germany Registers More Than A Quarter of A Million Ukrainian Refugees

More than a quarter of a million refugees have been registered in Germany since the Russian invasion of Ukraine a month ago, police reported Friday.


So far, at least 253,157 Ukrainian refugees have arrived at the German border. About 7,000 Ukrainians arrived in the country in the past 24 hours, and a number is roughly equal to the number from the day before. More than 10,000 refugees have regularly arrived in Germany in recent weeks.

The actual number of Ukrainian refugees currently in Germany is probably even higher because there are no fixed border controls at the internal borders of EU countries. In addition, Ukrainians do not require a visa to stay in the country.

Most Ukrainians who flee to Germany come via Poland, a neighbouring country of Ukraine. More than 2.2 million refugees have registered in that country since the start of the war. A total of about 3.7 million people have fled Ukraine, according to the UN refugee agency UNHCR.
