A wooden bridge that links Ukraine to Romania has been turned into a ‘Bridge of Toys’ by local officials and volunteers.
Thousands of Ukrainians have fled into Romania over the bridge since Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24. Romanian border police came up with the idea to reassure frightened children and give them a warm welcome.
Children can pick one of the fluffy toys that have been laid out on the small bridge, Adevarul reported.
Most Ukrainian refugees are women, some with children, and the elderly. Very few men can leave Ukraine as men aged 18-60 are conscripted into the Ukrainian forces for the war
