Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been devastating to thousands of people. So many people have lost their homes and lives over something that wasn’t necessary. It has been reported that more than 150,000 Ukrainian refugees have now crossed into neighbouring countries, half of them to Poland, and many to Hungary, Moldova, Romania and beyond.

Africans in Ukraine are apparently receiving terrible treatment in trying to flee the country like others. Many people on Twitter are speaking about Africans allegedly being stranded in Ukraine.

A Twitter user named Damilare posted a series of videos of how Africans are being treated in Ukraine. He claimed Ukraines were blocking Africans to get on trains. He posted an alleged screenshot of a group chat with Africans sharing their experience on the ground. In one screenshot, one person said they aren’t letting Africans on the trains to Poland and in another screenshot one person says they are “pushing black guys away.” Damilare posted another picture of Africans taking shelter waiting for safe harbour to asylum. Check out the full Twitter thread here. Damilare also posted a video of Africans waiting in the cold outside of the border. Watch it here.
