NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- AIM Tell-A-Vision® Group (AIM TV), producers of the nation's most-watched travel show, Raw Travel®, announced their episode "Steadfast in Ukraine" featuring a visit to wartime Ukraine this past July will debut this weekend November 19-20, 2022, with a rebroadcast scheduled for January 28-29, 2023. 

The episode features Executive Producer / Host Robert G. Rose as he and Ukrainian refugee videographer Anastasia Zui cross from Poland to film in Lviv, Ukraine.    

Anastasia, a talented cinematographer, and regular member of the Raw Travel crew is a twice-displaced refugee from the Donbas region. She continues from Lviv to Kyiv to reunite with her mother for the first time since fleeing the country with her young brother. Her father is serving in the military. Anastasia's experience returning to the country is just one of the storylines.

The episode also documents the difficulty and misery of crossing borders during wartime and an impromptu "off-camera" interview with an anonymous escapee from then-Russian-occupied Melitopol. Rob and Anastasia document a life-affirming exchange with a recently injured Ukrainian soldier and an emotional visit to the ever-expanding Lychakiv Cemetery, where recently killed, soldiers are laid to rest. All among the unpredictability, suspense, and drama of air-raid sirens as Russia fires missiles into Ukraine. 

But the show's primary theme is the Ukrainian people's steadfast, optimistic, and hopeful spirit and gratitude to their ally, the United States, as they bravely fight for survival and freedom.  

"I've filmed various challenging situations in scores of locales, but none more fraught with uncertainty," says Robert G. Rose, Producer, and Host. "It was life-changing, and I hope it can help keep support for Ukraine steadfast in this country as the brave Ukrainian people deserve. 

During the broadcast, Raw Travel will offer an opportunity for viewers to donate to Care4Ukraine.org and Keep the Kids Learning, two organizations led by Joseph Nichols, an American logistics professional living in Ukraine. The grassroots organizations are supplying educational resources for refugee children and medical supplies, solar-powered generators, warm clothes, and water filters to help Ukrainians get through what is likely to be a brutal winter. Viewers will be invited to visit RawTravelGiveBack.com to learn more and donate to the cause if desirous. The show has thus far raised well over $10,000 for Care4Ukraine and in-kind donations to Anastasia's father's platoon near the front.
