Russia's border guards say Ukrainians flee, see signs of "humanitarian catastrophe"-TASS

MOSCOW, March 2 (Reuters) - Russia’s border guard service said on Sunday some 675,000 Ukrainians had left for Russia in January-February this year and that there were signs of a “humanitarian catastrophe”, Russian state news agency Itar-Tass said.

“If ‘revolutionary chaos’ in Ukraine continues, hundreds of thousands of refugees will flow into bordering Russian regions,” Tass quoted the service as saying.
