Haplogroup U2 is most common in South Asia but also found in low frequency in Central and West Asia, as well as in Europe as U2e. The overall frequency of U2 in South Asia is largely accounted for by the group U2i, whereas haplogroup U2e, common in Europe, is entirely absent; given that these lineages diverged approximately 50kya, these data have been interpreted as indicating very low maternal-line gene-flow between South Asia and Europe throughout this period.

This haplogroup has been found in the remains of a 30,000-year-old hunter-gatherer in South European Russia (Kostenki).
