The United Nations says 10 million people have fled their homes in Ukraine, many heading abroad, in the three and a half weeks since Russia invaded the country and launched a full-scale war.

In that time, thousands have been killed or wounded as Vladimir Putin's forces target residential areas. Shelling and airstrikes have caused widespread damage to buildings and infrastructure.

Moscow denies targeting civilians.
