In February 24th 2022, Russian troops invaded Ukraine. The next day,80,000 citizens of the 
country left their homes to seek refuge in neighboring countries, according to data from UNHCR. A week later, the number rises to 1,200,000 Ukrainians displaced by the war, most of them women and children. According to UNHCR, up to four million people could leave Ukraine. Land transport has become the main escape route since the airspace was closed. Half of these refugees have crossed the borders into Poland, where a large community of Ukrainians already resides.
