Ukrainians will face difficulties and hurdles before they can settle into their new homes, which are linguistic-related due to the differences between the two countries. We can no longer just sit idly by and watch, we should strive to help in the best way we can. Ukrainians make up the second-largest expat community in Portugal, with an estimated 30 000 to 50 000 Ukrainians calling Portugal their home, and is expected that many more will arrive, wishing to settle near their relatives and friends.
‘There is a remarkably close connection between our two people – I even believe we are very much alike in terms of feelings: we have the same sense of nostalgia, saudade (longing), and depth, which are different and unique to our two nations.’ – Iryna Panasyuk, Portuguese/Ukrainian translator.
