Tracking the Paths of Ukraine's Refugees

Summary from the AllSides News Team

The United Nations says that over 4 million Ukrainians have fled the country amid Russia's invasion as of this week. Where have they gone?

Over 2 million have crossed the border into neighboring Poland since late February, boosting Poland from #101 to #2 on the list of countries with the most refugees within its borders. Another 620,000 have fled to Romania, and over 390,000 more have fled to Moldova. Some 350,000 have also fled to Russia, according to the U.N., which says it has established safe evacuation routes for people entering from Ukraine. Hundreds of thousands have also fled to Hungary and Slovakia.

Outside of Europe, at least 2,000 Ukrainian refugees are in Mexico seeking entry at the U.S. border. President Joe Biden has said the U.S. will welcome up to 100,000 Ukrainian refugees; the U.S. admitted 11,411 total refugees from around the world in fiscal year 2021.

Reports across the spectrum have tracked the flight of Ukrainian refugees. Some coverage, especially from right-rated sources, frames Ukrainian refugees seeking entry at the U.S.-Mexico border as an issue that could lead to more overcrowding and delays in migrant processing.
