In what may be the largest movement of people in Europe since the Second World War, nearly 5 million Ukrainian refugees have fled their homes in the 50 days since Russia invaded the country.

The data, which comes from the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), paints a stunning picture of the unimaginable effect the war has had on Ukrainians.

Since the start of the war on February 24th, 4,736,471 refugees from Ukraine have been counted by the UNHCR, and 79,962 have fled the country in the last 24 hours.

Due to the country’s rule prohibiting able-bodied men aged 18-60 from leaving the country, an estimated 90 percent of the refugees are women and children.

In addition to 4.7 million refugees, 7 million Ukrainians internally displaced

Apart from the nearly 5 million refugees who have fled the country, there are an estimated 7.1 million Ukrainians who have been internally displaced, meaning that they were forced to flee their homes but have not left the country, according to the International Organization for Migration (ΙΟΜ).
