According to UN figures, more than 2 million people have fled Ukraine since the war began. Polish authorities state that 1.2 million Ukrainian have fled to Poland.

A total of 2,011,312 people have fled Ukraine and are currently in neighboring countries, UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi stated on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Ukrainians could be seen leaving a city in the east of the country. A 12-hour ceasefire has been introduced in the area following an agreement between Russia and Ukraine on five safe corridors for people fleeing the clashes.

Poland says 141,500 people crossed the border on Monday. Many people are also going to the Czech Republic, which has received 100,000 Ukrainians so far.

According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), many people have also traveled to Hungary, Romania, Moldova, and Slovakia. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (IOM) says that more than 100,000 people from countries other than Ukraine are among the refugees.

Ukraine had over 44 million inhabitants before the war began.
