Lyssna: UNHCR: 160 000 fleeing Ukraine
According to the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, 160,000 people have been fleeing Ukraine in recent days.
UNHCR’s Swedish representative in Ukraine, Karolina Lindholm Billing, says that a roof over the head and something to sleep on are the most immediate needs right now.
“But then comes the question of where to go next. We will help the authorities set up a reception centre where you can stay anywhere from a few hours to a few days”, she tells Swedish Radio News.
