An 11-year-old refugee has been hailed a hero after he travelled more than 600 miles alone from Ukraine to Slovakia to escape Putin’s forces.

The young boy from Zaporizhzhia the site of the nuclear power plant which captured by Russian forces La semaine dernière – crossed the border to Slovaquie all alone with just a backpack, a plastic bag, a passport and a phone number written on his hand.

The boy’s mother sent him on the journey by train to live safely with relatives, while she stayed behind in Ukraine to take care of her sick mother.

Slovakian authorities praised the boy and said volunteers looked after him when he arrived, giving him food and drinks.

In a statement posted on the Slovakian ministry’s Facebook page, the Slovak Minister of Interior said: "[Le garçon] gained all of them with his smile, fearlessness and determination, worthy to be a true hero.”

The statement added that the boy was reunited with his relatives in Bratislava thanks to the phone number written on his hand, and a piece of paper in his passport.
