In just over two weeks, more than 2.8 million people have fled Ukraine due to the war, the UN refugee agency UNHCR reports.

More than 1.7 million of the refugees fled to the neighboring country Poland, the UNHCR wrote in an update on Monday.

Ukraine’s other neighbors have also received hundreds of thousands of refugees. 

According to the UN, Hungary has received 255,000, while Slovakia has received close to 205,000 people.

Most refugees are women and children. Many Ukrainians have also fled within the country, including to the city of Lviv, a few miles from the Polish border.
