The news: An immigration spokeswoman said that the eight Ukrainians were the first to arrive in the Central American country “for humanitarian reasons.”

  • Officials stated that another plane carrying more Ukrainians arrived some hours later. Since the Russian airstrikes on Ukraine began, it’s unclear how many people have landed in Guatemala on their own.
  • “I don’t know what the future holds for us, but I hope the war ends soon,” said one of the refugees. “It’s hard to say how much my heart hurts for my mother and father in Ukraine, who can’t leave.”
  • The Northern Triangle of Central American countries consists of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. The first announcement of the arrival of Ukrainians was from Guatemala. The Northern Triangle of Central American countries has seen much of its inhabitants flee owing to violence and poverty.
  • In recent months, a growing number of Ukrainians and Russians have migrated to Latin America, including those who arrive at the US-Mexico border.
