Ukrainian refugee children applauded on first day of school in touching video

Two Ukrainian children were cheered on by their classmates as they started their first day at an Italian school, in a video that is going viral.

The moment the two children entered the building was recorded and shared on Twitter. It was first posted by user Chudouo on Sunday and has since been posted by other social media users. The video has already been viewed over 400,000 times.

“Ukrainian kids meet at Italian school,” Twitter user Chudouo wrote while sharing the video, according to a Google translation.

“The video of Ukrainian children starting in their new school in Italy is [crying face] #LongLiveUkraine,” Huffington Post reporter Nick Knudsen wrote in the video caption.

In the video, the two children can be seen walking through the doors of a building where children and teachers begin to applaud.

Some of the children can also be seen waving Ukrainian flags and decorations can also be seen in the colors of the Ukrainian flag, yellow and blue.

The students then approach the two Ukrainian refugee children and drive them to school.

Since the start of the conflict, after Russian military forces invaded Ukraine in late February, a refugee crisis has quickly gripped Europe.

More than 2 million people have fled Ukraine since the start of the invasion, including 1 million children.

The UN refugee agency said large numbers of children were trying to leave the country unaccompanied.

The agency said last week it was focusing on protecting refugee children who are at heightened risk of violence, abuse and exploitation.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly condemned Russia’s military action, especially for its impact on children.

In a speech to Britain’s parliament last week, he said he would never forgive Russia for its actions.

“The most frightening figure was 50 Ukrainian children killed in 13 days of war. But in one hour it became 52 children,” he said.

“I will never forgive him. And I know you will never forgive the occupiers.”

Ukrainian forces have also accused Russian soldiers of shooting at fleeing civilians as they attempted to leave their towns and the country.

“Today, during the evacuation of residents of occupied Demydiv, a policeman from the Kyiv region, Staff Sergeant Oleksiy Ponomarenko, heroically died,” said Andriy Nebytoc, the chief of police of the Kyiv region. Kyiv in a Facebook post on March 9.

“The invaders opened fire in the direction of security forces and civilians.

“To save people, Alexei paid the most expensive thing, his life.

“We are proud of the policeman’s courage and selflessness, even the death of comrades will not stop us. We will continue to serve and protect, defend our homeland and save people.”
