They have successfully navigated a way out of Russian President Vladimir Putin's ferocious, unprovoked war on Ukraine, which according to the United Nations has displaced upwards of 10 million people, killed at least 1,100 civilians and threatened the lives of tens of thousands more.

They don't carry any obvious physical scars of war with them. But leaving everything behind from one life and beginning another in a different country brings its own hardships. For many, the relief at finding a save haven is tinged with trepidation over what comes next.

Ukrainian refugees leave everything behind, except these few treasured items, as they flee Russian attack. Even once they are out of Ukraine, these journeys are far from simple. Over the next two days, they will quietly fret about where they are headed and who will be there to meet them.

  1. Exceso de partidas al otro lado a dos metros bajo tierra. Mostrar los dañados por MATASANOS. Pregunta por qué no lo quiere agarrar.

  2. I think total liquidation of Ukrainian state as inherently Nazi state is inevitable now. I just hope this war criminal Zelenskyy and his henchmen will face justice and won’t be just eliminated by their CIA handlers or die from overdose. The way their Nazi units use civilians as human shield in cities like Mariupol is absolutely despicable. Even Hitler’s Nazis found Ukrainian Nazis who worked for them too barbaric and cruel.

    1. What a gross comment. 5000 civilians killed in their houses and flats in Mariupol by cowardly bombs and you still mock the victims with such a comment. People can be gross.
      Besides, the Ukrainians are glad that they have Zelenskyj as President and support him in defending their homeland against Russian invasion. But none of this appears in Russian state propaganda. Everyone knows that. That’s why nobody takes fake comments like yours seriously

  3. Meanwhile 2.3 Million of Ukrainians arrived in Poland. This is dissaster. However Poles are trying to help – it is beyond the means of the country. Time for Mr. Zelensky to organize financial support for the Ukrainian refugees so they do not destroy Poland.
