In Osteuropa 4/2015

No More War
Refugees from Eastern Ukraine

Olga Gulina

Deutsche Fassung


More than two million people from eastern Ukraine have left their homes since the outbreak of fighting. One-third has fled to other locations in the Donbas; one-third has moved to other regions within Ukraine; and one-third has fled abroad, primarily to Russia. To a certain extent, Russia and Belarus have relaxed the legal regulations for entry, residence, and work. But Russia also uses the refugees and citizenship rights specifically in the pursuit of foreign policy. Mired in a difficult economic situation, Ukraine is trying to cope with one million internally displaced persons.
