That's close to one in ten Ukranians.

Roughly two million children have now been forced to flee Ukraine — making up half of all refugees from the war — the United Nations Children's Fund said Wednesday.

More than 1.1 million have arrived in Poland alone, with hundreds of thousands in nearby countries of Romania, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

UNICEF warned of a heightened risk of exploitation and trafficking for children fleeing violence. In an effort to quell those risks, the UN agency is scaling up “Blue Dots,” which are one-stop safe spaces for traveling families. 

More than 100 children have been killed in the conflict, UNICEF added, with more than 130 injured. 

More than 2.5 million children have been internally displaced within Ukraine, according to UNICEF.

Children are God's special gift to humanity. Anyone that abuses or murders children, such as Putin and his army, have a special inferno waiting on them in ****.

Syria is a civil war that started within the country.

Sure, with no outside assistance, funding and arming and provocation.... Sure... :)

Who starts all this?

Yep, Vladimir Putin started all this and so, he is to blame first and foremost. But you must also take into consideration the precondition that led to his decision to attack Ukraine, a country very close to Russia ethnically and historically.

Contrary to our expectation, 81% of the Russian people support Putin's decision, according to a survey conducted by an independent research center. Is it because the Russian people are only fed with pro-government information?

Well I believe Putin took like 99% of the vote last time too.

If there’s anything the last few years have taught us about Russia, it’s the only lies come out of Russia. Well, and trolling, and war, and cheating, but yes lots of lies.

More than 608,000 have entered Romania, over 387,000 have gone to Moldova, and about 364,000 have entered Hungary since the war began on Feb. 24, based on counts provided by governments.

And about 507 000 come to Russia since Feb. 24

In year 2014 it was about 700 000 Ukrainian refugees in Russia (and no one international organisation helps them)

Those going to Russia are Russians

Yes, like most people of south-east Ukraine.

Ukrainians living mostly in north-west part of this country.

It's not a secret and never was.

Isn’t Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine, partly responsible for the devastation and destruction of cities and deaths of many citizens? His government says the Ukrainian forces are all ready to counterattack the invading Russians now that most civilians have evacuated from cities.

4 million refugees have now fled Ukraine, UN says:

If 4 million Ukrainians have left the country, how many millions more are displaced in their own country and near the border to be granted entry to the neighboring countries.

Who are responsible for such tragic huge exodus..?

Who are responsible for such tragic huge exodus..?

You put a really good question

Who starts all this ?

Over 13 million refugees in and from Syria.... but of course they don't count as the West encouraged that war.
