More than 2 million people have fled Ukraine since Russia launched its full-scale invasion less than two weeks ago, the United Nations refugee agency or UNHCR said.
Poland alone has received nearly half of those Ukrainians seeking refuge.
Tuesday’s figures show 1.2 million people have crossed into the country in the past 13 days.
Hungary has taken in over 190,000 Ukrainians, Slovakia received more than 140,000, and Russia has seen over 99,000 people cross over from Ukraine, data show.

“We have reached 2 million Ukrainian refugees in 12 days and most of the countries that they’re going to are Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, the Republic of Moldova, Romania, other European countries as well, the Russian federation and Belarus.”
After several failed attempts, Russia promised Tuesday to open humanitarian corridors to allow civilians safe passage from Ukrainian cities under siege.
