King Charles III of Great Britain visited the city of Aberdeen in Scotland, where hundreds of families from Afghanistan, Syria, and Ukraine live. The monarch met with Ukrainian refugees and personally talked to them about the situation in the war-torn country.
In Aberdeen, the sovereign met Ukrainian Inna Skvortsova, who moved here as part of the resettlement program in April and now works for the city council, helping to implement a project for IDPs. This was reported by The Press and Journal.
The refugee thanked the King for his support of the Ukrainian people and expressed hope that the UK would continue to help Ukraine defeat a great enemy in a criminal and destructive war.
" I didn't expect to be here to meet the King six months ago,, but now I am proud to represent my country. I am so grateful that the UK helped me. I am very happy to be doing what I am doing now - helping people, my countrymen. My family lives here, and I am happy to start my life here from the very beginning. It is safe here. I hope that the UK will continue to support Ukraine in its fight against the aggression that is plaguing my country," Inna said.
The 34-year-old Ukrainian woman called Aberdeen her "second home" but emphasized that she hopes to return to her homeland to use the skills she has acquired abroad to help refugee families.
Ukrainians greeted His Majesty in embroidered shirts. In addition, a human corridor lined the streets of Aberdeen to meet Charles III's motorcade. There were ukrainians among them who were holding blue and yellow flags. The King spoke to them.
As OBOZREVATEL reported earlier, Olena Zelenska appealed to members of the royal family who broke their neutrality and supported Ukraine in the war against the aggressor country of Russia. The First Lady noted that Kate Middleton and Prince William had visited the Ukrainian Cultural Center in London, and that Elizabeth II had made a significant financial contribution to helping Ukrainians during her lifetime.
