“The war in Ukraine is so devastating that 10 million have fled — either displaced inside the country, or as refugees abroad,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi posted on Twitter.
Among the responsibilities of those who wage war, everywhere in the world, is the suffering inflicted on civilians who are forced to flee their homes, Grandi stressed.
On February 24, Russian president Putin announced the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy key infrastructure, massively fire on residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns, and villages using artillery, multiple launch rocket systems, and ballistic missiles.
Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced.
