According to the UN Refugee Agency, more than 4 million people have fled Ukraine as a result of Russia’s invasion, marking a new milestone in Europe’s greatest refugee crisis since World War II. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees announced on Wednesday that 4.01 million people have fled Ukraine, according to a database that analyses refugee flows throughout the world. 2.3 million of them have entered Poland.
As many people await developments in the battle, aid workers say the flow has slowed in recent days. In Ukraine, an estimated 6.5 million people have been displaced from their homes.
