Mother of 3 who filmed videos from Kyiv bomb shelter now safe in U.S. with her family

Olena Gnes, YouTube vlogger in Kyiv

Olena Gnes was a YouTube vlogger and tour guide in Kyiv before Russia’s war on Ukraine began a year ago. From a makeshift bomb shelter with her three children, and as her husband volunteered to defend Ukraine, Gnes started speaking to media just days into the war. She was recently interviewed again by CBC’s Rosemary Barton Live, this time from the U.S. where she’s safe with her family.
