Summary
The number of Ukranian refugees to Europe has surpassed 2.000.000. Images following the masses of fleeing people from Lviv to Central Europe.
With the Russian invasion of Ukraine progressing, a lot of people are deciding to leave the country. Mainly women and children head towards the Western borders and towards Europe. Men of the ages 18 to 60 are not allowed to leave (there is some exceptions). While many travel west, some travel east to bring humanitarian goods or join the the "International Legion" of the Ukrainian army. Many fleeing pass the Ukrainian town of Lviv, to then board trains bound to Poland, Slovakia and Hungary. Thousands have also reached Romania and Moldova. According to the UNHCR more than 2.000.000 people have already crossed into Europe, being warmly welcomed - unless they are of the wrong skincolor. Repeatedly there was reports of mistreatement of people of color. By Ukrainian military, as well as European police forces. Along the route volunteers are handing out supplies.Also in Germany makeshift shelters are prepared for first arrivals.
