There are 2.7 million people with disabilities in Ukraine, according to the European Disability Forum (EDF), while Inclusion Europe estimates there are around 261.000 people with intellectual disabilities.
The War on Ukraine by the Russian Federation is a major threat to persons with disabilities with many of them being “left behind” as refugees flee the conflict.

The European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD), EDF and Inclusion Europe will host a Press Conference to inform journalists on the situation of persons with disabilities in Ukraine and bring to light the issues that these people are facing. The Press Conference will include representatives of Ukrainian disability organisations who are currently working on the ground in Ukraine. And it will help inform journalists and interested stakeholders on the situation of persons with disabilities in Ukraine and what can be done to support them.
