Historically, since the beginning of the escalation of the armed conflict in Ukraine, all international, diplomatic and governmental institutions during the evacuation from Kyiv have chosen the Lviv region for a new location. In the future, taking into account the geographical location of Lviv region in the immediate vicinity of the border with the EU and the largest number of checkpoints, in connection with which the largest number of migrants was received in Lviv and district centers of Lviv region.

As of March 19, 2022. According to the United Nations, 3.3 million migrants left for the EU, and the total number of migrants forced to flee the fighting was 6.5 million. At the same time, the flow of migrants is not decreasing due to the launch of "green corridors" in various "hot" locations. There is also a new channel from the EU, migrants who are forced to return to the Lviv region for a number of objective reasons in search of shelter and social and humanitarian assistance. Given the above, the Lviv regional organization of the TCH of Ukraine had to carry out a structural reorganization as soon as possible to launch this project - increasing the staff of various specialists and creating a coordination center for permanent and temporary locations of migrants and rapid response teams. Despite this, our resources are depleted, the flow of migrants is increasing, all this will deepen the humanitarian crisis in the Lviv region, which could lead to a humanitarian catastrophe.
