Airbnb will provide short-term accommodation for as many as 100,000 refugees fleeing Ukraine, CEO Brian Chesky announced on Monday, APA reports citing Business Insider.

Russia began an invasion of Ukraine on Thursday, prompting thousands to flee. UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said in a tweet Monday that over 500,000 people have already fled Ukraine into neighbouring countries.

"Airbnb and Airbnb.org are working with our Hosts to house up to 100,000 refugees fleeing from Ukraine, for free," Chesky tweeted Monday. Airbnb.org is Airbnb's charitable arm.

Chesky appealed for hosts from neighboring countries including Poland, Germany, Hungary, and Romania to join the effort.
