1,045,459 have fled Ukraine – UN map

UNHCR chief Filippo Grandi said one million represents about 2 per cent of Ukraine’s population.

No fewer than one million people have left Ukraine according to a UN Map.

The humanitarian crisis unfolding in the country is exposed in a UN refugee agency map showing the flow of people out of the country in the fastest movement of refugees this century.

UNHCR chief Filippo Grandi said one million represents about 2 per cent of Ukraine’s population.

“I have worked in refugee emergencies for almost 40 years, and rarely have I seen an exodus as rapid as this one,” he said.

“Hour by hour, minute by minute, more people are fleeing the terrifying reality of violence. Countless have been displaced inside the country.

“And unless there is an immediate end to the conflict, millions more are likely to be forced to flee Ukraine.”

As people leave Ukraine, those arriving in the European Union — Poland, Slovak Republic, Hungary and Romania — can move about with relative freedom.
