Since February 24, 2022, Ukraine lives a nightmare constant since Russia started a senseless war. The current reality is that the conflict has claimed the lives of numerous civilians, as well as the displacement of millions of Ukrainians who have fled their homes leaving behind his past and also, to many of his relatives, how well because they had to stay at the front, or because due to age or physical condition, have not been able to leave the country and they continue to resist under the bombs.

Many Spanish homes have taken in Ukrainian families, they have been given work and shelter, but above all, security and darling. The conflict continues, the bombs and missiles do not stop, but the rest of the world embraces the Ukrainian people and Spain continues demonstrating every day that it is a supportive country and that, from the anonymous citizen to the highest institutions of the country, not they will leave aside those who are living this barbarism.
