In 2019, Ukrainians received the third place among refugees in the United States, after the citizens of Congo and Myanmar. This is reported by The Washington Post.

The number of refugees from Ukraine to the United States from October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019 (the fiscal year in the United States, - Ed.) amounted to 4451, i.e. 15% of the total number of asylum seekers. In 2016, Ukrainians accounted for 3% of all refugees.

It is noted that Ukraine is not registered in the UN estimates on the global refugee crisis, and the policy of the US Presidential Administration Donald Trump, who advocated a ban on entering the United States to a number of countries where the majority of the population is Muslim, could lead to changes in the demographic composition of migrants.

It is also reported that in 2019, eight times more Ukrainians arrived in the United States for political asylum than Syrians, four times more than Afghans and 12 times more than Sudanese.

"This is unprecedented and demonstrates a departure from the historical direction of the program based on needs and threats. The administration’s strategy does not open access for the most vulnerable categories of refugees," said vice president of the International Refugee Committee.

According to the US agency, most Ukrainians arriving in the United States with the status of political refugees do not run away from war, but use the opportunities provided by US law for repressed categories of citizens in the former Soviet Union.

It is noted that most Ukrainian refugees are Baptists, Pentecostals, and Evangelists.
