About 108,000 people crossed the state border of Ukraine in the western direction on February 28, according to the State Border Service of Ukraine.

According to operational information, about 15,000 vehicles left Ukraine, which is about 10% less than on February 27.

Almost 96,000 people traveled to leave Ukraine for the EU and Moldova. In particular, almost 61,000 people crossed the border to Poland, the rest - to Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Moldova.

Currently, there are about 8,000 cars in queues to exit.

Over the last five days of Russian aggression, people not only left Ukraine.

"About 80,000 of our compatriots have returned to their homeland, most of them are men. Patriots who worked or temporarily lived abroad arrive in Ukraine to join the ranks of the Armed Forces, other military formations and territorial defense forces," the message says.

All checkpoints on the western border operate around the clock. Checks and access operations are simplified as much as possible, the list of documents that you need to have when leaving the country is minimized. The border guards and customs officers of neighboring countries also simplified the passage to their territory as much as possible.

The State Border Guard Service asks all citizens at the border to observe the rule of law, order and moral standards when crossing the border.
