100 Days….

Today (03-06-2022) the war in Ukraine has been going on for 100 days. But in the news, that war seems to be receding more and more and attention is shifting.

Today, when I look at nu.nl (a Dutch news site), there is only 1 article about the war in Ukraine in the top 10. Let’s look at some raw numbers, though…

  • Today, the counter with refugees from Ukraine who are in Poland stands at 3.79 million. (approximately)
  • Yesterday, 22.500 crossed the border into Poland, Wednesday it was 21.500
  • Today, the counter with refugees from Ukraine who are in the Netherlands stands at 62 Thousand. (approximately)
  • Today, the counter with refugees from Ukraine who are in the US stands at 6 Thousand. (approximately)
  • One third of the Ukrainian population has fled. 14 million is the estimate.
  • Poland calls on people to gather wood. In connection with problems related to the energy supply.
  • The number of people suffering acute hunger will increase by 17% as a result of the war.
  • The education of 5 million children has been suspended.
  • The number of civilian casualties in Ukraine as of today is 9197. The military casualties are not included.

And those are sad numbers on the 100th day of the war that seems far from over. Except in the news… today it was about a football match and a concert by the Lady’s of Soul
