The 150,000 Ukrainians fleeing Russia’s war — in pictures
The war in Ukraine — which Meduza will continue to call a war, despite demands from Russia’s state censor that we do otherwise — has already seen no fewer than 150,000 civilians forced to leave their homes. Poland, Moldova, and Hungary are all accepting Ukrainian refugees. Slovakia has declared a state of emergency due to the large wave of new arrivals. In addition, the United States has declared its readiness to help refugees, and Ireland has cancelled its visa requirements for Ukrainian arrivals. Here, Meduza rounds up photographs capturing the scale of the displacement crisis already in progress.
