Russia-Ukraine registers: number of displaced globally reaches above 100M

(MENAFN) Based on the United Nations, Russia's conflict in Ukraine has pushed the global number of forcibly displaced people past 100 million for the first time.

According to the UNHCR, over eight million people have been displaced within the nation, with more than six million refugees escaping across frontier.

In the latest salvo in reaction to Western penalties and its widening international isolation, Ukraine ruled out a ceasefire or concessions to Moscow on Sunday, whereas Russia continued its offensive in the eastern Donbas area and halted providing gas to Finland. The situation in Donbas is " extremely difficult," according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, but he is convinced that Ukraine's military can defeat Russian advances.
