A baby sits in its buggy, while Polina (5, right) huddles under a blanket with her mother, Anastasia Pichakhchi. The family fled Kharkiv after shelling hit their apartment bloc. Beside them Oksana (56) and her mother, Myrslava (80), huddle together and try to keep warm.

The train station at Lviv is the main hub for people trying to escape the war in Ukraine. Most of the refugees here are heading to Poland arriving on trains that come from all over the country. The thousands of mostly women and children have to wait many hours in long queues despite the freezing cold.
