Since February 24, 2022, more than 6 million Ukrainians have fled abroad to escape the war, and more than 8 million have become internally displaced. Experts estimate that the labor shortage could reach 4.5 million people, which means about $45 billion in lost taxes over 10 years. Failure to return forced migrants will cost Ukraine $113 billion in lost GDP over this time.
