Spanish village renamed 'Ukraine' in solidarity

STORY: At the roundabout at the entrance to the village, the war-torn country's name replaced Fuentes de Andalucia and the blue and yellow flag of Ukraine was painted alongside.

The Mayor of Fuentes de Andalucia, Francisco Martinez, said the main aim was to raise awareness but that the name change had also prompted villagers to raise nearly $3,800 towards a planned refugee center.

Streets have also been renamed City of Kiev, Odesa and Mariupol.
