Nova Kakhovka in Ukraine, was taken by the Russians on the first day of the invasion. For the first couple of months Professor Igor Serdyuka still did his job as the director of a 500 student school. But in early June the Russian occupiers told him to start teaching the Russian curriculum. When he refused, they threw him in jail. He escaped the war with his wife Tatyana, and they have found refuge in Millstreet, but he still organises teaching the students online.
Sky News visited Millstreet recently and interviewed the couple, which can be watched on SkyNews.com.
The first Ukranians arrived into the Green Glens on Wednesday evening, and the RTÉ news covered their arrival. Pascal Sheehy interviewed some of the Ukrainians, as were Community Council members Noel Buckley and Margaret Bourke. The RTÉ coverage can be seen in the article: ‘Now, I feel safe’: Ukrainians fleeing war arrive in Ireland
