Gwendolyn Sasse has written an article for Carnegie Europe (13 February) entitled ‘The Voices of the Displaced in Ukraine and Russia’.

“In early 2017,” she writes, “the war in Ukraine’s eastern region of Donbas intensified after a lull and regained a temporary media presence.  However, the views of internally and externally displaced people remain hidden from view.  By summer 2016, the Ukrainian Ministry for Social Policy had registered close to 1.8 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Ukraine.  Since 2015, Ukraine has been among the ten countries with the largest IDP populations worldwide. Moreover, about another 1 million have fled from the conflict zone to Russia.
