  • As of April 11, UNHCR estimates that nearly 4.5 million refugees have fled Ukraine while OHCHR has recorded 4,335 civilian casualties.

  • So far, the UN and humanitarian partners have provided life-saving humanitarian assistance to more than 2.1 million people in Ukraine, according to OCHA.

  • The number of successful evacuations through humanitarian corridors in different parts of Ukraine has increased in recent days. Evacuation corridors have been established from Mariupol (Donetsk Oblast); Berdiansk, Tokmak, Energodar and Melitopol (Zaporizhzhia Oblast); Sevierodonetsk, Lysychansk, Popasna, Hirske and Rubizhne (Luhansk Oblast). During the weekend of April 9 and 10, some 6,932 people were evacuated, while on April 11, more than 4,000 people. However, evacuations from Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts remain difficult and are often blocked due to ongoing hostilities.

  • Russian offensives in eastern Ukraine intensified with continued shelling of Kharkiv, Severodontesk in Luhansk Oblast, Donetsk and Kherson Oblasts.

  • More than 10,000 civilians died in Mariupol according to the mayor, while the Ukrainian Azov regiment said Russia used a poisonous substance against Ukrainian troops in Mariupol.

  • The European Commission is also coordinating the provision of assistance through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism to Ukraine, from the 27 Member States and the two Participating States. More than 16,000 tonnes of assistance from these countries and rescEU medical stock items were delivered to Ukraine via UCPM logistics hubs in Poland, Romania and Slovakia.
