At least 2,504,893 people have fled Ukraine to neighboring countries since Russian forces invaded the eastern European country on Feb. 24, according to the United Nations refugee agency.
Over 500,000 children are among those who have fled Ukraine for Poland, says the education minister. He has pledged that they will be integrated into Polish schools and properly educated, while also maintaining standards for existing pupils.
