Ukrainian war refugees top 5 million as assaults escalate
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — After spending weeks without power or water in the basement of his family’s home in Ukraine, Viktoriya Savyichkina made a daring escape from the besieged city of Mariupol with his daughters, ages 9 and 14. years.
Their accommodation is currently a huge convention center in the Polish capital. Savyichkina said she saw a photo of the destroyed Mariupol house. From a cot in a foreign country, the 40-year-old bookeeper thinks of starting her life and that of her children over from scratch.
