On 2 May, the European Union and IOM launch an all-Ukrainian awareness-raising campaign for the prevention of human trafficking during the war.
“Taking care of the Ukrainians, who had to leave their homes escaping Russia’s invasion, we continue to provide much-needed help to such people and consult about the security rules and risks while traveling, looking for a job or a place to stay,” says a press release from the EU and IOM.
