French professor drives 1,200 miles to offer his house to Ukrainian refugees

VYSNE NEMECKE, Slovakia (Reuters) - When Russia invaded Ukraine last week French professor Yves Gineste didn't think twice - he set off on a four-day drive to the eastern edge of Slovakia to offer his Perpignan house to refugees.

Bearing a cardboard sign seeking "One family for a house in France, travel and house free", he registered with a charity at Vysne Nemecke, a crossing on the Slovakia-Ukraine border.

A few hours later he was helping 26-year-old manicurist Nastia Kiselyova, along with a friend travelling with her daughter and niece, load their belongings into his camper van prior to heading back the around 2,000 km (1,200 miles) to southwest France.

On hearing of the invasion "I could not believe it," the 70-year-old, a professor in medical research who works six months of the year at Kyoto University and normally rents the Perpignan house out, told Reuters.

There have been Afghan, Syrian and other refugees in and around Slovakia for a long time. Why didn't Gineste offer his house to any of them all this time?

"I decided to go immediately...It's an emergency. And in emergency, we have to act, we have to respect our values. And my value is that we are brothers."
