Ukraine Country Information Webinar: Stateless and/or Undocumented People
Thursday, 28th July 2022

The last census in Ukraine recorded 82,550 stateless people, and in 2021 UNHCR estimated there to be at least 35,000 stateless and people with ‘undetermined nationality’. Other sources suggest there could be many tens of thousands more, including a significant proportion of the Roma population as well as children born in Crimea, Luhansk and Donetsk since 2014.

Reports from actors working in Ukraine and the neighbouring countries suggest that stateless people fleeing the crisis may face additional barriers and discrimination when seeking safety because of their lack of nationality or lack of civil documentation.


Information on stateless, at risk of statelessness, and/or undocumented people fleeing Ukraine

Ukraine Country of Origin Information Repository (stateless, at risk of statelessness, and/or undocumented people) covering 2014 - 3 July 2022 produced by Asylos and Clifford Chance.

Country briefings produced by the European Network on Statelessness are intended as a source of information for refugee response actors and affected individuals.

Click here for a list of actors providing advice and assistance for stateless people and those at risk of statelessness in countries neighbouring Ukraine, and here for a list of advice providers across Europe.

Series of advocacy briefings, produced by the European Network on Statelessness, on statelessness and the Ukraine crisis, with the most recent briefing providing updated information and recommendations on access to protection for stateless refugees from Ukraine, including under the EU Temporary Protection Directive (TPD). The analysis of routes to protection for refugees from Ukraine in 17 European countries draws on country briefings produced with ENS members, and shows that there are significant protection gaps across Europe for refugees from Ukraine who are stateless or at risk of statelessness (including those with undetermined nationality).
