According to this organization, more than one out of every 74 people on earth has been forced to flee.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has said that Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 created the fastest-growing displacement crisis and one of the largest since World War II.

In Afghanistan, the establishment of the Islamic Emirate in August 2021 caused a massive migration of citizens of this country. The destination of most of these immigrants was Afghanistan's neighboring countries, including Iran and Pakistan.
