Viktoria and her baby have been waiting for nearly 50 days to get a UK visa.
Her husband and twelve-year-old daughter were killed by Russian shelling while fleeing Chernihiv.
She and her baby were kidnapped by Russian troops the following day and held in a basement for over three weeks, before they were freed and escaped to safety in Poland.
The Ukrainecast podcast has been following her story. You can hear more on BBC Sounds.
