IOM launched this study to better understand the profiles of those fleeing Ukraine to Montenegro as well as their main needs and experiences of applying for Temporary Protection in Montenegro. IOM data collectors interviewed 173 persons who had left Ukraine as a result of the Russian invasion in February 2022. The interviews took place between 3 March and 23 March 2023 in the Herceg Novi, Bar and Budva municipalities. IOM also conducted interviews with nine Key Informants (KIs) from the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Health, representative from NGO “Građanska alijansa”, representative of the Ukrainian Embassy in Podgorica and four Ukrainian nationals residing in Montenegro. The objective of this study is to highlight the main needs as well as to assist responders and decision-makers in addressing policy and programmatic gaps.
