Russia invaded Ukraine about two months ago, resulting in millions of Ukrainians fleeing to escape the war. Neighboring countries have responded admirably, opening their borders and offering refuge. The European Union went further, creating a new temporary immigration status that grants displaced Ukrainians work permits, free health care, and other benefits. While the fighting continues, those who managed to get out are essentially safe and able to provide for themselves and their families. And, by remaining nearby they can more easily return home, as 1 million Ukrainians have reportedly already done.
