Facing the unknown
Since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, more than 115,000 refugees have crossed into Poland. Ukrainians have been leaving the country in huge numbers following the Russian invasion but many were being forced to wait more than 60 hours in long queues to cross into neighboring Poland. The Ukrainians walking to the border were largely women and children, and were “resigned” to the journey, having accepted it as “the only option they had.” Not knowing where they go and where they will stay - people were crossing the border to find a safer place. I photographed people on the Ukrainian-Polish border Krakovets - Korczowa and Shehyni - Medyka in first days of full scale war.
