Meet the Ukrainian train attendant who accompanies world leaders

Kyiv (Ukraine) (AFP) – Ukrainian train attendant Tetyana Kogut has accompanied Western leaders visiting her country since the start of the Russian invasion. She lives in a Ukrainian mountain village, but Tetyana Kogut, 36, has rubbed shoulders with powerful world leaders. Since Russia’s invasion of her country she has taken on an unlikely role in her job as a “providnytsa” — a sleeping car attendant — welcoming countless VIPs travelling by rail to show their support for Kyiv.
