More than 40,000 Ukrainian refugees now in Estonia

 

According to the Estonian Police and Border Guard (PPA), 41,379 Ukrainian refugees have entered Estonia with an intention to stay since the war began. As a result, Ukrainian refugees now make up over 3 per cent of Estonia’s total population. However, the number of refugees entering the country each week is reducing.

As of today, 41,379 Ukrainian refugees have entered Estonia with an intention to stay since Russia’s invasion of the country back on February 24. With Estonia’s small population of just 1.3 million, this means that Ukrainian refugees make up more than 3 per cent of Estonia’s population. This is one of the highest rates in Europe.

However, the number of Ukrainian refugees entering Estonia is slowing down. Last week 2179 refugees entered Estonia, of which 1330 were in transit and 879 intended to stay. These numbers are down by almost 500 compared to the previous week when 2672 Ukrainians entered Estonia. Of these, 1657 were in transit, and 1015 intended to stay in Estonia.

To date, Lithuania has welcomed more than 50,000 refugees, and Latvia in excess of 26,000.
