According to the UN, more than 3.8 million people have fled Ukraine since Russia’s invasion a month ago. 

The figures are from Sunday, and they show an increase of 48,000 people since Saturday. About 90% of Ukrainian refugees are women and children, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

2.2 million refugees have traveled to neighboring Poland, while about half a million have gone to Romania. Almost 300,000 refugees have gone to Russia, the UN agency stated.

It is estimated that a quarter of the Ukrainian population, equivalent to more than 10 million people, has now fled their homes, including almost 6.5 million who have been internally displaced.

According to the UN, Ukraine’s refugee crisis is Europe’s worst since World War II.
