TIJUANA, Mexico—Vladimir Ostapchuk and his family went to the US-Mexico border on Sunday afternoon to seek asylum, the last border they would cross after a 20-day journey through several countries that began with Russian forces invading their native Ukraine last month .
Mr Ostapchuk, a 33-year-old construction worker from Vinnytsia, fled Ukraine overland via Moldova with his two children, his wife and their brother’s family of four. They traveled through several countries before making their way to Germany, then on to Cancún, Mexico, and later to Tijuana, just over the San Diego border. Once in the US, they planned to go to Vancouver, Washington, to reunite with relatives who lived there.
