The UN refugee agency says more than 368,000 people have fled Ukraine since Russia invaded on Thursday.
“The current total is now 368,000 and continues to rise,” United Nations High Commission for Refugees, or UNHCR, says in a tweet, adding the new figure was based on “data made available by national authorities.”
A large number of those escaping to neighboring countries have crossed over into Poland, where the authorities have counted some 156,000 since the invasion started early Thursday.
Border guards counted some 77,300 arrivals from Ukraine on Saturday alone.
Others have also headed to Moldavia, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania.
The refugees are arriving in cars, in packed trains and on foot.
