  • RE: Cash gift from overseas parent

    I am a British resident but Ukrainian by nationality. my family lived in Ukraine. At the critical moment, my mom and dad died and I have not visited Ukraine since 2014, since the war started there and my city was captured by the Russian army. my dad got sick in 2010 and had to sell his house and business, he sold it for cash and since the war started he didn't put it in the bank. All this time, my family and my friends send me this money a little bit by private delivery company and if someone goes to Ukraine , we agree on a certain commission, and I put it in the bank. Unfortunately, it is impossible to arrange a transfer because are no banks there and I cannot fly because it is dangerous for my life. Do I need to declare this money? I only can prove that they residents of Ukraine an me and my husband are Ukrainian residents and still have family there.
