Some 3.7 million people have fled Ukraine since Russia's invasion a month ago, the UN has said today.
The UN refugee agency, UNHCR, said 3,725,806 Ukrainians had fled the country - an increase of 50,854 from the previous day's figure. Around 90 percent of them are women and children, it added.
Of those who have left, 2.2 million have fled for neighbouring Poland while more than half a million have made it to Romania. Around 20,000 have gone to Russia.
In total, more than 10 million people - over a quarter of the population in regions under government control before the February 24 invasion - are now thought to have fled their homes, including nearly 6.5 million who are internally displaced.
