Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson has indicated that the fate of her cousin and others who are currently in Ukraine is hanging in the balance following moves to flee fighting.
Taking to her official Twitter page, the pretty actress indicated that her cousin as well as other Ghanaians had been caught up in the invasion of Ukraine.
According to the actress, many Ghanaians living in Ukraine for various reasons had to walk to Poland border in a bid to escape the fight between Russia and the Ukraine.
The actress said the issue was really getting to her and said her cousin as well as others were currently stranded on the Polish border and called for immediate assistance for them.
Her post read:
"I'm desperate now. My cousin is part of a group of Ghanaian students who've journeyed all day (some by foot) to the Polish border of Shehiny. They've been there for several hours now with no certainty of crossing the border. Are there any officials to help??
