Newly arrived refugees seek assistance from Polish army soldiers after crossing the border from Ukraine.

A heartbreaking human drama is playing out along Ukraine's borders -- fleeing refugees pass the homesick going back, while others who left and then returned flee for their lives for a second time.

Women and children are still pouring out of a land being pummelled by what one called Russia's "creatures from Hell".

But hundreds of thousands of refugees are returning home, determined to stay.
