Since the war started, more than 30,000 refugees from Ukraine have arrived in Montenegro.The Pupchenko family took their documents and essentials and left the Kiev in February 2022. 
When they arrived in Montenegro, they applied for asylum and yet still waiting for a decision. In the meantime, they are still living in temporary free accommodation offered by a family in Kotor.
Marina was eight months pregnant and was afraid of how the birth would go because of the stress she had endured. At the beginning of May, she gave birth without complications. The grandparents count the days until they can meet their new family member in person.
