Months of escalating Russian hostility towards Ukraine have culminated in a concerted invasion of the country and the launch of military attacks across multiple cities in Ukraine, to destabilize the country and provoke a change in government. Fleeing insecurity, Ukrainians are traveling west, with Poland establishing eight reception centers along its border with Ukraine, for an estimated 1 million arrivals.
Between February 7 and 23, 2022, an IRC team undertook a scoping mission covering Poland and Ukraine to better understand the context, humanitarian and civil society landscape, and anticipated service gaps in the event of an escalation of conflict in Ukraine, consequent displacement in neighboring Poland. As of February 24th, the IRC has pivoted to emergency response and has identified partner agencies in Poland and Ukraine to facilitate immediate assistance that can be used where it is most needed. Simultaneously, IRC/partners will launch a rapid needs assessment to understand better the humanitarian needs in both Poland and Ukraine and how IRC can complement partner response services either in breadth or scale
