Five Kenyan students are among tens of thousands of Ukrainians who are headed west into Poland in the wake of the Russian invasion.
Speaking to The Standard about the arduous journey out of Ukraine, Kenyan national and Kharkiv National University telecommunications student Stephanie Iman expressed hope that she will make it to the border before Russian troops close in on the capital Kyiv.

Strained by uncertainty and fear for her child with whom she is travelling with from Kharkiv, northeast Ukraine, Iman said a 10-kilometre walk awaits her at the nearest border town where thousands of refugees displaced by the conflict are awaiting processing to cross into Poland.
