When Ukrainian refugees Olesia and Serhii landed in the US, two things surprised them: the warm reception they received, and the cavernous expanses of the country's largest shopping centre, Minnesota's Mall of America.
"That was an interesting experience! We liked what we saw," Olesia told the BBC through an interpreter. "But what I can really say is that there are many heartfelt people here, and that it's safe."
The couple fled the city of Dnipro almost exactly a year ago after Russia's invasion of Ukraine began on 24 February 2022. Shortly thereafter, they travelled to Italy, where the pair and their two young children took shelter in a dormitory alongside more than 100 people. เล่นบาคาร่าให้ได้เงิน
