Exiled Crimean Tatars cook up a new life in Kiev

After Russia annexed Crimea in early 2014, the life of many Crimean Tatars turned into a struggle for their rights.

Many were targeted or harassed because of the ethnicity.

The Budzhurovs grew afraid of the unrest and uncertainty surrounding them and took the decision to start a new life in Kiev.

Eskander, the father, had a secure job at a resort in Crimea, but left everything behind fearing for the safety of his family and started a new business in the Ukrainian capital.

The trade: making the popular pastries called Chebureks.

The BBC's Anastasiya Gribanova and Vitaly Chervonenko met them at their shop.
