<strong>March 25:</strong> An elderly woman from Bishiv village is seen over the destruction of a library on the outskirts of the city of Kyiv, Ukraine.

The displacement of millions across Ukraine a little over a month into the invasion is evident in photos of sliced-open apartment buildings, dogs in arms and children's belongings left behind.

As Russians continue to carry out military assaults on Ukrainian cities, residents in the country are taking cover in subway cars, basements and bomb shelters.

Even as Russia says it will refocus its military strategy in eastern Ukraine, Russian forces ramped up attacks in western cities like Lviv on Saturday, where displaced civilians had not long ago sought refuge from the war.

The displacement of the millions of lives in Ukraine, a month into the invasion, is evident in photos of sliced-open apartment buildings, dogs in arms and children's belongings left behind.
