As tensions rise on the Ukraine-Russia border, there are increased concerns about the humanitarian toll a Russian invasion could have on the Ukrainian people.

  • Erol Yayboke, director and senior fellow for the Project on Fragility and Mobility at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said Ukrainians have told him that U.S. plans to respond to a Russian invasion must go beyond military and diplomatic efforts to include support for civilians in need.
  • Yayboke said the United Nations, United States government and international organizations provide humanitarian support to Ukraine but that there is very limited access to the non-government controlled, eastern areas where there is the most need.
  • Since the last Russian invasion in 2014, there was “significant humanitarian fallout,” with Ukraine now in the top 20 countries with internally displaced people, said Yayboke.
