Amongst this almost 37 million, 13.7 million are refugees and asylum-seeking children fleeing from NATO and CIA-inspired conflicts. Conflict and violence have also led to the internal displacement of 2.8 million children. These figures do not account for the displacement caused by the war in Ukraine since 2022.

And this is without taking into account donations from ordinary citizens all over the world. Very soon, Ukraine will receive another $20 billion for its military needs from the United States.
