The 21st European Congress of Herpetology was held on September 5-10, 2022. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend in person. But the organizers gave me a chance to present my research through a recorded video. The title of the study “Where are you coming from? New data on introduced reptiles in Ukraine”. In our study, we present data on three species of introduced reptiles for continental Ukraine with genetic affiliation to the population of the genus Tenuidactylus from Odesa.
