Data on 2 million prisoners, primarily from the Western, Romanian and Serbian Fronts have been collected during the war by the International Prisoners of War Agency, set up by the ICRC in August 1914.

Armed clashes in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine have forced thousands of families to flee their homes. Reportedly, hundreds of thousands are now displaced both in the country and in Russia. The living conditions of the resident population are worsening also.

Children kidnapped and trained as soldiers, girls snatched and forced to be “wives,” entire villages reduced to ash. Between 2008 and 2011, communities in Orientale province, north-eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, were struck by waves of extreme violence.
