Commissioner Meng Foon’s comments came after two vehicles were spotted in Auckland bearing the letter “Z”, which is regarded as denoting support for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Kiwi Russian Lucy Melnikova said Russian and Ukrainian families were often closely linked and her own grandmother lives in Ukraine.
