British-Ukrainian who is helping to evacuate refugees across the Polish border using a London black cab has said he is “doing everything he can”.

Roman Tymchyshyn, 31, has already transported around 80 people including pregnant women, disabled elderly people, children and even a nine-month-old baby.

He began driving refugees in his black cab across the Polish border on February 28, and has since racked up around 2,169 miles – which is around 300 miles a day.

“My employer is very generous and has allowed me one month’s paid leave so I relocated to Ukraine mainly to help people evacuate,” Mr Tymchyshyn told the PA news agency.

“Until they cross the border or reach their final destination the passengers feel frightened but they are sometimes more relaxed when they are gathered together with different families as I form groups of random people.

“They discuss their stories and cry together about the losses or talk about their family members who have been split up.”

Mr Tymchyshyn, who is from Lviv, western Ukraine, travelled back to his birth country with his wife Ulyana Vovk from their home in Portadown, Northern Ireland, after war broke out almost a fortnight ago.

The classic car enthusiast said his black cab is “more comfortable and spacious” which allows him to transport disabled people or enables him to carry up to six passengers.

In addition to the helping refugees flee the war, he has also transported their pets – including a cat, a rabbit, two dogs and a turtle.

“I am doing everything I can to help… giving blood, looking for supplies, transporting goods through the border and fundraising,” he said.
