Russia Ukraine War

On this edition of Your Call's Media Roundtable, we're discussing the plight of Ukrainian refugees and why thousand have decided to return in spite of Russia’s ongoing military aggression.

As of late April, an estimated 7.7 million residents have been displaced within Ukraine and more than 5.5 million people have fled since the invasion began on February 24, according to the U.N. Refugee Agency.
