About the Emergency

On February 24, 2022, Russian military forces conducted an unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, causing hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes. The people of Ukraine have been caught in the middle of conflict for nearly eight years, and there are currently 2.9 million in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. In addition to the direct impacts of ongoing conflict, COVID-19 has exacerbated economic insecurity and lack of access to health care in Ukraine.

USAID is ramping up humanitarian assistance to help people affected by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The United States is one of the largest donors of humanitarian assistance in Ukraine, providing nearly $405 million to help vulnerable communities across the country. More information on the U.S. Government’s humanitarian activities in Ukraine can be found here.
