Africans Blocked from Evacuation Routes Out of Ukraine
In the train stations here in Kyiv, children first, women second, white men third, then the remaining is occupied by Africans. This means that we have waited for many hours for trains here & couldn’t enter because of this.— Nze (@nzekiev) February 25, 2022
Majority of Africans are still waiting to get to Lviv.
We had to start shouting and pushing African women to the train, so they had no other option than to allow them since they said women and children first.— Nze (@nzekiev) February 25, 2022
It wasn’t the case earlier.

Been at the Poland-Ukraine border for the past 5 hours & they’re segregating.— Nze (@nzekiev) February 27, 2022
Ukrainians the other side, Africans & other foreigners on the other side. Like 100 Ukrainians first, then two Africans & other foreigners.
Well, if their citizens leave, who will fight for them? We?
Ukrainian army and Police are threatening to shoot us at Ukraine -Poland border.— Nze (@nzekiev) February 27, 2022

A Nigerian medical student at Poland/Ukraine border (Medyka-Shehyni) told me she has been waiting 7hrs to cross, she says border guards are stopping black people and sending them to the back of the queue, saying they have to let 'Ukrainians' through first.— Stephanie Hegarty (@stephhegarty) February 26, 2022
