The Church of Pentecost (CoP) and Pentecost Students Association (PENSA) have aided stranded Ghanaian in Ukraine to seek refuge following Russian attack on Ukraine.
“I would like to thank Church of Pentecost and for that matter PENSA for the evacuation of Ghanaian to Poland. It was PENSA and the Church of Pentecost, which provided buses from Hungary, Slovakia to evacuate those stranded Ghanaian from the Ukraine border”, Ghanain-based in Poland, James Reinhold disclosed.
According to him, without the church, more Ghanaians would by now die as a result of the war between Russia and Ukraine.
“Even at the border of Ukraine, the inhumane treatment and harassment by the Ukrainian troops is so scary that most of the Black people have returned to Ukraine because the Ukraine Soldiers are not allowing them to leave the shores of their country”, Reinhold told Kwasi Kyei Baffour on ARK FM’s The Issues show.
“The information you are receiving from the institutions in Ghana about figures and assistance being giving to those people are from the Church of Pentecost. Ghana government hasn’t done anything with authorities in Poland “, he added during a telephone conversation.
On February 24, 2022, Russia began invading Ukraine by land, air and sea, having camped at the Ukrainian borders for weeks. Russian Forces are reported to have fired several missiles into Ukraine, and its personnel are in Ukraine and its territorial waters.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has demanded that Ukraine’s military surrender. While the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, has said that “Russia has embarked on a path of evil, but Ukraine is defending itself.”
Russia has said that it is invading Ukraine to free its citizens from a dictatorship. It also accuses Ukraine of developing nuclear weapons. The European Union and other major countries have said that claims are false and are just a pretence for Russia to begin its invasion of Ukraine.
