USAID Response in Ukraine

The U.S. Government’s partnership with the people of Ukraine is steadfast and enduring, and USAID remains committed to supporting Ukraine and its people in this current crisis. We have worked closely with Ukraine, our European allies, and humanitarian assistance partners to prepare for the emergency that this war has caused and meet immediate and growing humanitarian needs. 

USAID deployed a Disaster Assistance Response Team—our nation’s finest humanitarian responders—to the region to support the Ukrainian people as they flee Russia’s aggression and to rapidly address critical needs that arise due to ongoing conflict. We have already responded to a range of needs in the lead-up to the invasion, from energy security to countering disinformation to cybersecurity support as Russia attempts to disrupt critical infrastructure and communications. We will continue to assess and ramp up access to primary and trauma medical care, food, and clean water. USAID is also working closely with the U.S. State Department to support Ukrainians fleeing to neighboring countries.

More than 70 years ago, members of the United Nations General Assembly gathered to adopt the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. The Convention and its 1967 Protocol outline the rights of, and protections for, refugees—the right to basic standards of treatment and, critically, protection against return to persecution. A core tenet of refugee protection embedded in these instruments is non-discrimination—including that states should not restrict access to asylum on the basis of race, religion, or country of origin.
