An internally displaced person (IDP) is a person, who was forced to suddenly flee his home as a result of a military conflict, violence, violation of human rights, natural disasters or other catastrophes, but what differentiates him from a refugee is the fact that did not cross an international border and is located on the territory of his own country (source: United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs).

Внутренне перемещённое лицо (ВПЛ) - человек, который был вынужден внезапно бежать из своего дома в результате вооружённого конфликта, насилия, нарушений прав человека, стихийных бедствий или других катастроф, но, в отличие от беженца, не перешел международную границу и находящийся на территории собственной страны (источник: Управления ООН по Координации Гуманитарных Вопросов).
