Around 2,500 Ukrainians are currently stuck in the Turkish province of Antalya.

Routes home from the tourist destination became shut off after the invasion began.

Those now facing an uncertain future include Ukraine’s Olympic medal-winning national Canoe team, as well as players from a number of top-league football clubs.

President Erdogan has not signed Turkey up to many of the West’s sanctions against Moscow and Antalya still hosts Russian tourists.

The region hosted last week’s failed peace talks between foreign ministers of Russia and Ukraine.
