More than 700,000 people who fled the war in Ukraine have been registered in Germany so far, German newspaper Bild am Sonntag reported, citing Interior Ministry data.
The newspaper added that from the beginning of the war on February 24 until May 11, 727,205 people were registered in the central register of foreigners in Germany, 93% of whom held Ukrainian citizenship. She said many of them may have traveled to other EU countries or returned to Ukraine.
About 40% of Ukrainian refugees are minors, Bild said, and women make up 81% of registered adult refugees.
The latest report from the International Organization for Migration indicates that the Russian military operation has caused a massive displacement of people, including more than eight million Ukrainians, inside the country.
On Thursday, a UN refugee agency said the number of people fleeing Ukraine had topped six million in Europe’s worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II.
