How many Ukrainian refugees can Europe receive?

As Russian forces advance in Ukraine, millions of refugees are seeking safety outside the country.

As the war in Ukraine rages, the UN has warned the humanitarian crisis could grow.

People are crossing to neighbouring countries to the west, such as Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Moldova. But most refugees from Ukraine have travelled to Poland.
