From the Document: "On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a full-scale attack [hyperlink] on Ukraine, a country of 43.7 million people. The United States and its allies have condemned [hyperlink] the invasion, and are imposing trade and financial sanctions [hyperlink] on Russia and enhancing their own military deterrence posture [hyperlink], while also providing aid to Ukraine. More than 4 million people [hyperlink] have fled as refugees to neighboring countries, and the United States pledged humanitarian assistance [hyperlink] in response to the crisis. The United States maintains deep and multifaceted relations [hyperlink] with Ukraine, and the country is a leading recipient [hyperlink] of U.S. foreign and military aid. As of 2019, more than 350,000 [hyperlink] foreign-born individuals from Ukraine resided in the United States. Some have U.S. citizenship and others have lawful permanent resident [hyperlink] (LPR) status. Still others have temporary statuses [hyperlink] (such as students, tourists, and temporary workers) and could see their authorized periods of admission end before it is safe to return; and some have no lawful immigration status. Those with temporary or no legal status could benefit from certain temporary immigration relief options."
