Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky ordered a massive mobilization at the start of the war, forbidding men of fighting age to leave the country.

According to the survey, only 4% of Ukrainians knew German well but half were attending German courses. Three-quarters were living in private housing and only 9% lived in public housing for refugees.

Most reported their health to be good. However, they have significantly lower life satisfaction than the German population, and Ukrainian refugee children also have lower well-being than other children in Germany, the survey said.

About 17% of Ukrainian refugees of working age were employed at the time of the survey, and 71% of employed refugees had a job requiring a vocational or university degree.

The survey noted that Ukrainian refugees especially expressed a need for more support in learning German, seeking employment, obtaining medical care, and finding housing.
