About 3 million refugees have already entered the EU as a consequence of the Russian war in Ukraine. There are also millions of displaced persons within Ukraine and refugees continue arriving in the EU in large numbers. Despite their great efforts, national authorities at the EU’s main crossing points are often overwhelmed and understaffed. Many refugees, most of them women, children and vulnerable persons, are obliged to wait long hours, if not days, in the cold of winter before they can pass through the checkpoints.

At the same time, our EU agencies – the European Union Agency for Asylum (EUAA), Frontex and Europol – have the mandate, as well as the human and technical resources to provide operational support to the Member States.
