Over a million refugees have escaped, the largest exodus by far. Up to 4 million, maybe 7!
Here in Italy the refugees started arriving by bus and train about 2 days ago. According to ANSA, Italy can expect to receive almost a million refugees from the Ukraine war, it’s an estimate based on the fact that the Ukrainians in Italy stand at around 250,000, that many relatives will seek to join them and every Ukrainian family has an average of 2-3 children.
When the refugees started to pour into Poland, as so many Ukrainians have Polish ancestry, I was happy to hear the PM of Poland say that dogs were allowed as well.
