According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, as of 28 June, almost 5.5 million Ukrainian citizens were displaced across Europe. Over 1.4 million of them reportedly crossed the border into Russia after 24 February.
Despite agreeing to open humanitarian corridors for the safe evacuation of Ukrainian civilians from Russian controlled territory, there is overwhelming evidence of their unwillingness to do so. This includes several reported cases of private vehicles and evacuation buses being targeted by the Russian military. This has resulted in the injury, death, or the abduction of their occupants.
