In the last several days, the war between Ukraine and Russia has escalated more and more. As the Russians have advanced into Ukrainian territory, citizens of the country have been fleeing elsewhere to find shelter and safety.
In Ukraine, there is a large population of African students that are in the country studying abroad, and just like the others in the country, they are attempting to escape the war. Unfortunately, they are being discriminated against and are being held off buses and trains out of the country because the government is “prioritizing Ukrainians. Even the ones that manage to escape are not being permitted to cross other countries’ borders. Right now, there are thousands of students trapped in Ukraine trying to find their way out of the country on their own to dodge the Russian attacks.
Atlanta rapper Young Thug has made his bid to help those Africans leave the country. In an Instagram post, Thug said,
“If some of my rap brothers are in I’m willing to help Africans get out of Ukraine however I can sense they not letting us pass”. He further continued to say,
“Whoever holds the info for these movements please contact me ASAP I’m ready”.
