I believe... 15/03/2022 | 11:43:20 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, Since the start of the invasion, almost three million people have fled Ukraine. Half of the refugees are children. There has not been a refugee crisis of this scale and speed since the Second World War. Vladimir Putin has repeatedly denied his forces are attacking civilians.
