The Hungarian Helsinki Committee has been providing legal information and direct legal assistance in protection-related matters to those having to flee due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We regularly monitor reception facilities where Ukrainian refugees are accommodated throughout Hungary. We summarize our findings in short, thematic reports.
