Refugees and Racism

As if being forced to become a refugee fleeing from war isn’t psychologically and emotionally traumatic enough:

Afro-Ukrainians or Black Ukrainians (Ukrainian: Афроукраїнці, Ukrainian: Темношкірі Dark-skinned), are Ukrainians of Sub-Saharan African descent, including Black people who have settled in Ukraine and their mixed race children.
