Ukraine War: A large number of refugees who have escaped the war immigrate to Poland, and some are heading to Moldavia, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania.
The UN refugee agency said on Sunday that more than 368,000 people have fled Ukraine since Thursday’s attack by Russia.
“The current total now stands at 368,000 and continues to rise,” the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, or UNHCR, said in a tweet. Adding the new figure was based on “data provided by national authorities”.

A large number of those fleeing neighboring countries have crossed into Poland, where officials have counted some 156,000 crossings since the invasion began early Thursday.
Border guards counted about 77,300 arrivals from Ukraine on Saturday alone.
Refugees have arrived in cars, on packed trains, and even on foot.
Those who have nowhere to go can count on the help of volunteers – both members of NGOs and private citizens.
Others have also gone to Moldavia, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania.
