Strictly’s Motsi Mabuse updates fans about her family’s safety in Ukraine

Strictly Come Dancing judge Motsi Mabuse has updated fans the safety of her parents-in-law's safety as they attempt to travel to Germany as Russia ’s attack on Ukraine amps up.

Over the past week, the pro dancer has been regularly updating her loyal legion of fans about the safety of her husband Evgenij Voznyuk’s parents.

On Saturday (26 February) the South African-German ballroom dancer, 40, reassured 72,400 followers that they remain in regular contact with them.

But the loving couple are currently unable to make it to the Polish border after they previously tried to enter Germany amid the Russian invasion.

The Strictly star tweeted: “We are in contact with them ! They spend more than half of the day yesterday in the bunkers !!!

“In Kharkiv there are heavy battles so we can’t get to them! At the moment there is nothing we can do. We did try to get them earlier in Germany.

“At the moment there is nothing we can do. We did try to get them earlier in Germany.”

In recent developments, missiles hit the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, as the fight for the capital looms.

But the fighting isn’t solely limited to the capital, as Russian armies continue to dominate other Ukranian cities including the area around Kharkiv where Evgenij’s parent’s live.

It comes after Motsi shared her concerns for her family earlier this week after an emotional phone call with her mother-in-law.

She tweeted: “It’s heartbreaking hearing my mother in law crying this morning, afraid and there [is] absolutely nothing we can do. Just Sad honestly.

“Our parents have been [told] to go outside and to switch off water &gas! They have no possibility to get to the polish border.”

The starlet had previously tweeted: “This cannot be happening!!!!!!!!!!!!” and asked for “prayers for Ukraine and the world.”

Motsi and her husband have been happily married since 2017.
