No fewer than 80,000 students who are enrolled in Ukrainian universities are from the Global South and many of those are from African countries.

They had a life in Ukraine until February 24 when Russia invaded and hundreds of thousands of people — Ukrainians and foreigners — fled to other countries for safety.
