NPR reported on March 3, 2022:

"The U.N.'s top refugee official said on Wednesday that 1 million people have now fled across the borders of Ukraine since Russian forces invaded a week ago.

[...]The new total of refugees from Ukraine amounts to a little more than 2% of the country's total population of 44 million. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), around one half of all refugees are in Poland, with Hungary, Moldova and Slovakia being the other top destinations, while others have fled to various other European countries."
