Refugee Crisis Mounting in Ukraine, by Greg Yoder, at Mission Network News
"As the uncertainty surrounding Russia and Ukraine continues, one thing is certain: the conflict is causing a refugee crisis. And interestingly, the international media isn’t reporting it.
"President of Russian Ministries Sergey Rakhuba was born in Ukraine and still has family there. “It’s already confirmed that 5,000 Crimean Tatars left Crimea, but also Ukrainian Catholics, Ukrainian Orthodox Churches were threatened by the Russian Orthodox Church. So they estimate that there are about 20,000 refugees what have already left Crimea.”
"Russian troops continue to be poised along the Russia/Ukraine border. Last week, Russian backed protesters took over administrative buildings in Donetsk, Luhansk, and Kharkiv. Once in control, they began asking Russia to protect them because they were feeling threatened. Who’s threatening who?

"If Russian troops cross the border into Ukraine, it will be bad for the country. “If this may happens, there would be a huge community of refugees streaming out of those regions to the mainland, western land of Ukraine.'”
