Russia-Ukraine War

Ukrainian Refugee in New York City Recalls Harrowing, Weeklong Journey to US

Since Russia invaded Ukraine in late February, the U.S. has admitted few refugees despite almost 3 million people fleeing the country. One of them, 36-year-old Misha Pishak, successfully made it to New York City earlier this month, thanks to a work visa issued two years ago. He recalled his weeklong journey and what it was like to leave his parents behind to NBCLX storytellers Ngozi Ekeledo and Mackenzie Behm.
