This weekend, I had the privilege of interviewing Christine Eliseev, who lives in Carterton with her husband, Vlad, and their kids. Vlad’s mum, Lyubov (which means love, aroha, in Russian) is trapped in the Ukraine city of Kharkiv. Lyubov has been bombed out of her apartment and is now staying with friends of friends. Vlad and Christine have set up a Givealittle page to raise the money necessary to enable Vlad to get to the Ukraine border and get his mum to safety. It would be great if you could have a listen and visit the Givealittle page if you are in a position to help. I’ll be keeping in touch with Christine as this story unfolds. Ngā mihi nui te whānau.
