    Speaking on the matter Cumberbatch said, “They’ve made it out of Ukraine; I’m monitoring their progress every day,” Cumberbatch said. “Sadly, they are undergoing some medical treatment. To say anything more about that would be an invasion of their privacy. The too much about when they’re coming and how that’s being managed would invade mine. I want to give them some stability after the turmoil that they’ve experienced, and that’s within my home.”

    Cumberbatch also claimed that he is assisting other migrants escaping Ukraine by paying for their shelter in the UK. The Oscar nominee is collaborating with Ukrainian families in the United Kingdom. Who are unable to bear the whole expense of sheltering their extended relatives as they abandon their homeland.
