"If they call him then he must go”
Ramilya, 35, fled Mykolaiv, Ukraine with her children, her sister Ira and Ira’s children. Together the two women crossed from Ukraine into Moldova and accepted transportation and the offer for temporary accommodation from a church in Chişinău.
“It was scary to leave, but we could not stay; it was not safe for me, for my children, for anyone. Putin is killing civilians. We left our husbands and my father. My husband, he is not a soldier, but if they call him then he must go.”
“Tomorrow we go to Azerbaijan and we will wait. We will wait and when it is safe we will go back to Mykolaiv.”
