Former Soviet Union (FSU)

The migration figures in the third chart of this news release are based on the country or continent of birth. Migrants arriving from Ukraine may have been born in Ukraine, but were often born in other countries of the former Soviet Union (FSU). The same applies to migrants from other former Soviet countries, for example the Baltic States or Russia. Since the provisional figures do not show the existing country from which they originate, and since Ukrainians still form the largest group to date, all these countries were taken together and shown as a separate group. Therefore, the figure is different from the number of Ukrainian refugees.
