Fox News host Greg Gutfeld, whose mother-in-law has been trapped in Ukraine during the conflict with Russia, thanked his colleagues on Friday for helping her to finally reach safety in Poland as she fled from the conflict with Russia.

Gutfeld shared an emotional video segment showing his mother-in-law being reunited with his wife Elena after she successfully made it to Poland. Gutfeld explained that his mother, who is from Ukraine, went back to visit family after her husband passed away from COVID.

"Her husband passed away from COVID last year, so she'd been spending time — she was born in Ukraine, she's a Ukranian Russian — so she was with her cousins or whatnot in this little tiny village when all this stuff happened. So we had to get her out of there and get her back, you know, thanks to Fox," Gutfeld said.

Gutfeld lamented the fact that, while his mother-in-law had been successfully evacuated, there were still millions of refugees still stuck in Ukraine who are attempting to flee the escalating violence in that country. "She was fortunate enough to make it to safety, but there are still millions and millions in danger."

Gutfeld had spoken about his mother-in-law's plight earlier in the week, and revealed on Thursday afternoon on air during "The Five," "“Just to let everybody know my mother-in-law crossed into … Poland about half an hour ago, so she's in a car on her way to Warsaw to see her daughter, Elena."

He thanked his Fox colleagues for helping "a grouchy, cynical bastard like myself" in a time of need.
