UN: Nearly 3.5 Million People Have Fled Ukraine

The number of people who have fled Ukraine is approaching 3.5 million. However, figures from the UN refugee agency UNHCR show that many people are still leaving the country and that the numbers are smaller than at the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.


90 percent of the huge group of refugees abroad consists of women and children. Men under the age of 60 must remain in Ukraine to fight against Russian troops.

As the war continues, the refugees spread more and more across Europe.

Some people have just travelled to Ukraine from abroad, partly to fight and bring family members to safety.

The Polish Border Guard reports that 264,000 people have crossed the border into Ukraine. On the other side, 2.08 million people have been counted.
