After a Month of the Full-Scale War, 200–300 Thousand People Remained in Kharkiv City; Now They Number 1,100,000 — Oblast Military Administration
The population of the Kharkiv region has increased significantly after a sharp decline at the beginning of the full-scale war. Oleh Syniehubov, Head of Kharkiv Oblast Military Administration, stated this during the briefing in the Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.
“We have currently hosted 450,000 internally displaced persons — this is in Kharkiv city and the region. If we speak about Kharkiv city, now the population numbers 1,100,000 people. Recall that during the full-scale invasion, in, relatively speaking, the first month, 200-300 thousand people at most remained to reside in Kharkiv. This means that people are returning. No longer so actively, but they return to the relatively safe territories. Why relatively safe, because the S-300 missile can reach any part of the Kharkiv region territory and the missile flies for 30–40 seconds. If we take other localities — in Lozova, where we were evacuating people, when a part of the region was still invaded, the population numbered approximately 10,000, and now we can already talk about 60,000 people,” Oleh Syniehubov said.
