UNITED NATIONS (Times Of Ocean)- Ukraine is witnessing 4 million Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war with Russia, the UN’s refugee agency has said.
“Refugees from Ukraine are now 4 million, five weeks after the start of the Russian attack,” tweeted Filippo Grandi.
“I have just arrived in Ukraine. In Lviv, I will discuss with the authorities, the UN and other partners ways to increase our support to people affected and displaced by this senseless war,” he added.

At least 1,179 civilians have also been killed and 1,860 injured since the beginning of the military campaign in Ukraine. Ukrainian
