they settled well in the local community. The problem was that
during WW2 several Russian refugees, who had been forcibly drafted
to the German Wehrmacht contacted GD Olga for help. So she
did, and this is what got her into trouble. Her neighbours didn't know
the whole story for obvious reasons, they only noticed soldiers in
German uniform at the farm and the speculation went wild!
After the war the Russians accused GD Olga of hiding
Russians refugees and they demanded her extradited.
The situation became very precarious; Denmark was too
close to Russia for comfort and the Danish government
couldn't guarantee for the safety of the Kulikovskis.
