One million refugees flee Ukraine for a week - UNHCR

AKIPRESS.COM - "In just seven days we have witnessed the exodus of one million refugees from Ukraine to neighbouring countries," UNHCR High Commissioner Filippo Grandi said.

"For many millions more, inside Ukraine, it’s time for guns to fall silent, so that life-saving humanitarian assistance can be provided," he added.

The Czech government declared emergency situation due to flows of refugees since March 4.
