While most refugees have fled to neighboring Poland, other nations have received a major influx of Ukrainians in recent days.
Neighboring Moldova reported on Sunday that more than 230,000 Ukrainians have fled into the nation since February 24. Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Moldovan President Maia Sandu during his trip to eastern Europe on Sunday, offering support with refugee efforts.
In addition, a growing number of Ukrainian have fled farther west, with many reaching Germany. German Federal Police have registered 37,786 refugees as of Sunday, an interior ministry spokesperson told CNN.
