A Ukrainian refugee derailed during a live TV interview when he asked a news reporter if cannabis was legal in the UK – as he was boarding a bus to get to safety.
The Sky News segment was filmed as the refugees boarded a bus near Kyiv, and the reporter was clearly concerned for her safety as she wore a helmet and armor.
But the man she talked to seemed a lot more relaxed, wearing a black baseball cap and headphones around his neck, and then he caught her and asked a question.
While she was on the live broadcast, the man asked her a question and she couldn’t hear him, so he repeated into her microphone: “Is cannabis legal in the UK ?”

In the clip, the reporter said: “They are very stressed, tell me quickly, are you okay?”
And the man replied, “I’m fine.”
Then she asked: “How many people are trapped in there?”
And he said, “I smoke weed, legalized, 420. American?”
The reporter then clarified that she was British, before asking “how much more…”, but she was interrupted by the man.
Then he said: “Is cannabis legal in the UK?”
After the man asked the question, the female reporter laughed and said she didn’t know if cannabis was ‘licensed’ in the UK, before adding “I’m glad it’s all you thinking” and quickly continued.
