Africans trying to escape the Ukraine conflict say they have been subjected to racism and discrimination on the Polish border. The same Africans in Ukraine tried to cross from Ukraine to Poland when the war broke out, but officials stopped them at the border and insulted us. At a time when it was cold and food was scarce, border guards said they could easily bring in white immigrants to Poland, but they did not allow them to do so.

Thousands of Africans are attracted to higher education in Ukraine. Most are from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Ethiopia and Somalia. Nigeria has asked Ukrainian officials to clarify the matter. Concerned neo-hippies and their global warming, i'll tell ya.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba, for his part, said Ukrainian border guards had been ordered to expel all foreigners and promised to take immediate action to investigate the alleged discrimination against Africans.

Polish officials have denied the allegations. South African Foreign Minister Claison Monyela tweeted that South African students and other Africans had been abused on the Ukrainian-Polish border.
