He is Yury and he comes from Ukraine. He came to Italy to escape the war; he went first to Poland and then to Italy, where he sought political asylum. He tells that his country isn’t very welcoming to LGBTQIA+ people. Before coming to Casa+ he was in another shelter, where he felt very lonely and marginalized.
Yury is looking for a place in Italy where he can restart his life and feel welcome; he would like to learn Italian in order to study and work. He would also like to continue the studies he had undertaken in Ukraine before he escaped.
