Russia continues to pound Ukraine, fueling doubt over Putin's intentions as he war creates 4,000,000 refugees

The United Nations stated Wednesday that more than 4,000,000 people had fled Ukraine as of Wednesday. This has caused a lot of distress and made them refugees. At least 6 million Ukrainians were forced to flee their homes in order to find safety and security elsewhere in the country.

CBS News correspondent Debora patta reports from Kyiv, one of the areas in which Russia claimed it would reduce its attack. U.S. military officials view President Vladimir Putin's recent move more as a repositioning and retreat. The threat remained high in Kyiv and elsewhere on Wednesday.

The battlefield is not the focus of boardroom discussions such as Tuesday's Turkish peace talks. Patta claims that Ukrainians aren't letting down their guard, with soldiers still patrolling checkpoints in Kyiv looking for Russian saboteurs.

It was evident that there is still danger on the ground and in the skies, as evidenced by the sound of shelling being heard to the north of the capital Wednesday morning.

After Russia's announcement, President Volodomyr Zelenskyy stated that "the enemy is still there". "Missiles and air attacks have not stopped... this is the reality."

Mariupol, a port city in the southeast of Russia, has felt this way more than any other place. Mariupol's ruin and rubble are all that remains, even if peace can be restored.

The children of the city under siege, as well as many others in Ukraine's east and south, long for their childhoods to be returned.

One little girl said, "I'm so tired." "And my toys don't have batteries in them."

Genaidy asked Genaidy, as he tried to gather what he could from the apartment that was destroyed in order to flee Mariupol. "There is nothing left for me."

After nearly 40 years of working in the city as a shoemaker, he's leaving.

Russian-backed separatist fighters are fighting in eastern Ukraine, where the conflict that is now raging has been quiet since Putin's 2014 invasion. They don't want peace. Video showed rebels forcing Ukrainians into submission, claiming that they were looking for Nazi tattoos.

A Russian rocket crashed through a Mykolaiv government building, injuring another person. According to the Ukrainian State Emergency Service, one woman was unable to help her colleague who died in her arms. This is one of twelve people who were killed by the strike.

Along with the U.S., Zelenskyy and his Western partners have made it clear that they will believe Russia's claim of an ease in the attack on Kyiv, the northeastern city Chernihiv, when it happens, and not earlier. Threety-five day into an invasion that Putin had insisted for months he would not launch, the skeptical reaction was not surprising.

On Wednesday morning Chernihiv's governor stated that his region had been "shelled all night" with Russian artillery. He said: "Civil infrastructure was destroyed again, libraries and shopping malls have been destroyed and many houses have been damaged."
