Details: UK Defence Intelligence cited data from the Ukrainian authorities, who reported on 29 June that 139,000 people have been evacuated from the combat zones in the government-controlled areas of Donetsk, Kharkiv and Kherson oblasts since July 2022, in line with the state of emergency law.


As noted in the intelligence report, this is only one part of a wider crisis with internally displaced persons in Ukraine.

According to UN estimates, 6.3 million Ukrainians remain refugees and more than five million are internally displaced.

Quote: "With a pre-war population of 44 million, a quarter of Ukrainians remain forced from their homes as a result of Russia’s invasion."

Background: A UK intelligence review on 2 July explained the reasons for the cancellation of Russia's main air show.
