Some 870,000 refugees from Ukraine have already returned to their home country, according to the Ukrainian government. In the last week alone, some 330,000 people have come back following a relative easing of tensions.
A spokesman for the Ukrainian Border Security said that each day, about 25,000 to 30,000 Ukrainians continue to return to the their country.
In the initial few weeks of the war, the returnees were mainly men who were coming to Ukraine to fight against the Russian invasion. According to the statement, the majority of people returning to the country now were women, children and elderly people.
"They say they see that the situation is safer, especially in the western regions, and they cannot stay abroad any longer," the spokesman said.
Some momentary calm after weeks of war
Russian troops have largely withdrawn in northern Ukraine, focusing their war effort on eastern parts of the country, where they are supporting the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, which are not recognized by the international community.
According to UN figures, more than 4.6 million people have left Ukraine since the Russian invasion began in late February. It is estimated that more than seven million others may be displaced within the country.
