Has anyone ever sponsored refugees? If so how does it work?

I have friends who lived in Kyiv and left to Western Ukraine just before war broke out. I want to offer my house to them if that is possible. Can you sponsor a specific family? Not sure I want to take in anyone I don't know. They probably have family in Europe anyways, I just want to look into how the system works before offering my house to them or friends of theirs.


'The invasion of Ukraine is suicide for Putin,' says Kremlin critic Mikhail Khodorkovsky

I think Russia's lost control of their invasion, says Gen. Barry McCaffrey

McCaffrey has been so negative in recent videos, this was kind of eye opening.

From 2015: Special Report: Russian soldiers quit over Ukraine

Interesting they were having the same issues back in 2015 and Russia was pulling the same crap. Telling the soldiers they were sent to do exercises and then throwing them into a battle they didn't want anything to do with. Probably wishful thinking on my part, but I can just imagine many of the soldiers in that convoy talking amongst themselves, knowing friends who were tricked by Putin, not wanting to fight Ukraine and seriously thinking fuck this shit! Not going to kill or die for this prick!

Special Report: Russian soldiers quit over Ukraine
By Maria Tsvetkova


MOSCOW/DONETSK (Reuters) - Some Russian soldiers are quitting the army because of the conflict in Ukraine, several soldiers and human rights activists have told Reuters. Their accounts call into question the Kremlin’s continued assertions that no Russian soldiers have been sent to Ukraine, and that any Russians fighting alongside rebels there are volunteers.

Snip: Until now, however, it has been extremely rare to find Russian soldiers who have fought there and are willing to talk. It is even rarer to find soldiers who have quit the army. Five soldiers who recently quit, including two who said they left rather than serve in Ukraine, have told Reuters of their experiences.

One of the five, from Moscow, said he was sent on exercises in southern Russia last year but ended up going into Ukraine in an armored convoy.

“After we crossed the border, a lieutenant colonel said we could be sent to jail if we didn’t fulfil orders. Some soldiers refused to stay there,” said the soldier, who served with the elite Russian Kantemirovskaya tank division. He gave Reuters his full name but spoke on condition of anonymity, saying he feared reprisals.

He said he knew two soldiers who refused to stay. “They were taken somewhere. The lieutenant colonel said criminal cases were opened against them but in reality – we called them afterwards – they were at home. They just quit.”
