Up to four million Ukrainian may attempt to leave the nation amid the Russian invasion, the European Union (EU) estimates. Thousands of refugees are fleeing into neighboring countries in the west, such as Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, and Moldova. According to the United Nations (UN), more than 670,000 individuals have fled Ukraine and entered these countries as of Monday, February 28. So far, Poland has taken in around 377,000 refugees. The government claims that 50,000 more people are entering every day. Furthermore, the UN reports that these countries had taken in the following number of Ukrainian refugees as of 13:00 GMT on March 1:

Hungary – 89,561
Moldova – 65,391
Slovakia – 54,304
Romania – 38,461
Belarus – 329

Refugees in Poland and other nations bordering Ukraine can stay in refugee centers where they are fed and given medical attention if they are not with their friends or family. Hungary and Romania are providing food and clothes allowances in cash. Places at local schools are being offered to children. Meanwhile, The Czech Republic activated its Migration Wave Preparedness Plan that will make it easier for refugees to apply for a special type of visa and stay in the country if needed. Refugees are instructed that documents are not mandatory to enter neighboring countries but should bring their internal or foreign travel passports, birth certificates for children traveling with them, and medical records. To qualify for refugee status, they must be Ukrainian citizens or legal residents of Ukraine.
