'It is great here in Scotland but our soul is at home in Ukraine'
Maryna Naumenko

Scotland has given a home to more than 20,000 Ukrainian refugees fleeing the conflict in their homeland. What are their experiences of life in a new country?

Maryna Naumenko, 32, moved to Glasgow with her mother, Liudmyla, and her 17-month-old daughter.

She used to work in the Ukrainian parliament and met her host Aileen when she organised an education centre for the parliament.

"We are lucky because they are really great, they really support us a lot and give us freedom," she said.

She has been volunteering as a translator and has worked for both the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain and Police Scotland.
