Two and a half million people have fled the war in Ukraine so far, the UN reports.

“That includes 116,000 people from third countries,” the UN International Organization for Migration (IOM) wrote on Twitter.

“The number of people who need emergency humanitarian aid is growing every hour,” it is further stated.

Ukraine’s neighboring country Poland has received the majority of refugees, but the other neighboring countries are also experiencing a large influx of refugees from Ukraine.

Before Russia invaded, more than 37 million people lived in territory controlled by the Ukrainian government.
