In 2018, the State Migration Service of Ukraine recognised 24 people as refugees and reviewed 284 requests for refugee status. Oleksiy, a Russian activist, has lived in Ukraine without a status for four years. He is here because of political persecution. Despite the hardships of living without a status, Oleksiy tries to work, and participates in many events against the Russian aggression in Ukraine. Nurkhan, a journalist from Kyrgyzstan, has been seeking asylum with her three teenage children since the spring of 2018. The No Borders team is helping them in their search for freedom and safety.
