More than 150,000 refugees have left Ukraine this week, according to the United Nations, many of them headed for Polish border crossings.
Ukrainians tried to escape by train, car and on foot as Russian forces closed in on major cities, including the capitals Kyiv and Kharkiv, in the northeast. Some people have been stuck in traffic jams for kilometers or in long lines at customs, and others have fled by train to cities like Przemysl, Poland, near the border.
In the Polish village of Medyka, Ukrainians waited for their loved ones to cross the border and reach them. The village of Korczowa opened its doors to pedestrians on Saturday, providing another window for civilians to escape.
In Korczowa, Lidia Gaszewska-Baran and Heorhii Veselov, who work at a bakery in Poznan, Poland, donated food and hygienic items to migrants crossing the border.
