When separatist forces entered Nikita’s small hometown in eastern Ukraine, he was forced to leave behind everything he knew, from JDC community programs to his beloved fiancée. Five hundred miles away in Kiev, he found a home at the city’s Moishe House, a Federation-supported community hub for young Jews. Shortly after beginning his new life, he discovered his passion—police work. It’s a natural extension of the community work he loved so much before. Now, he hopes to help his country also begin again from the depths of crisis.
