Russia's invasion, which started on Feb. 24, has triggered a massive displacement of people, including more than 8 million Ukrainians within the country, according to the latest International Organization for Migration (IOM) report.

U.N. data showed that 6.03 million had fled Ukraine as of Wednesday.
