You’ve heard the harrowing stories of Ukrainians fleeing their country amid the onslaught of Russian tanks and troops.
But imagine if you’re a helpless newborn or a retired American paratrooper now trapped with a sick wife behind what has now become enemy lines. Where do you turn?
Many turn to Project Dynamo and a Florida man named Bryan Stern who’s willing to dodge Ukraine's death and destruction to get people to safety.
