An estimated 2,155,271 refugees have fled Ukraine amid Russia’s ongoing invasion of the countrywith the majority escaping to Poland, according to statistics posted this week by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), as those in Mariupol reel from the aftermath of a bombing at a maternity hospital.

Nationwide, thousands are thought to have been killed, both civilians and soldiers, in the two weeks of fighting since Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forces invaded.
