The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) welcomes that European countries have opened their doors to people fleeing Ukraine. Our full solidarity is with everyone suffering from this conflict.

“The tremendous wave of support and help EU countries, institutions, civil society organisations and people across Europe are showing to Ukrainians fleeing their country gives hope in these dark times. People fleeing conflict should be welcomed irrespective of their nationality or ethnicity,” said FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty.

The Agency will support the EU and its Member States in upholding the human rights of all who cross its borders in flight from war.
