Many African students have found themselves in the middle of a war and despite the ongoing conditions they are still experiencing racism at the polish border and on trains by Ukrainians and Ukrainian police forces, abandonment by African embassies who advised them to ‘save themselves’ and lack of proper communication channels to lead them to safety.
A great number of Africans go to Ukraine to study because of the affordable cost of fees and the cost of living compared to other countries in Europe and the United States.
Business Insider reported Morocco, Nigeria, and Egypt are in the top 10 countries with students in Ukraine, in total sending over 16,000 students to the country.
