First refugee baby born to parents fleeing their native Ukraine after driving nearly 700 miles

This is newborn baby ‘Luka’ safe in Poland – thought to be the first refugee child born to parents fleeing their native Ukraine since Russia invaded.

His parents, mother Ksenia, 33 and Ruslan Zhuralev, 46, braved terrible and dangerous travel conditions when he was past his due date to ensure he could be born in the safety of Poland rather than his war-ravaged home nation.

Luka was born February 26 just a day after the couple endured a nightmare eight-hour crawl through more than 12 miles of traffic to reach the border with Poland at Ustrzykydolne.
