INTERVIEW: Charlotte man shares harrowing escape out of Ukraine

Matt Thacker, a Charlotte native who has lived in Ukraine with his wife for more than a decade has now safely escaped the country into Poland after the Russian invasion. Thacker said the road to cross the border was anything but easy.

"It's just absolute chaos," Thacker exclaimed. "Everywhere in the country's got lines and sort of days of waiting periods."

Thacker said as thousands are fleeing Ukraine, women and children are being prioritized. This means Ukrainian men are not allowed to cross over with their families. So Ukrainian fathers will drive up as far as they can, drop off their families and then cut back.
