Quote: “We currently have 450,000 IDPs [internally displaced persons – ed.] in the city of Kharkiv and the oblast. If we’re talking about the city of Kharkiv, we currently have 1,100,000 people [there].
Let me remind you that at the time of the full-scale invasion, after, relatively speaking, its first month, only 200-300,000 people remained to live in Kharkiv. This means that people are returning. They are not so active anymore, but they are returning to the territories where it is relatively safe.”
Details: Syniehubov added that people are also returning to some settlements in the oblast, in particular, to the city of Lozova. During the evacuation, when part of the oblast was still occupied, there were about 10,000 people there, and now, there are 60,000.
Reference: As of 2019, the population of Kharkiv was 1,446,107 people.
