To date, at least 902 civilians have been killed and around 1,459 injured in Ukraine according to UN estimates. More than 3.38 million people have fled Ukraine since the start of the war, and there are approximately 6.5 million internally displaced persons.

Ties between Turkey and the Arab world are experiencing a major thaw after long years of tension.
