Ukrainian nationals and capital

This is, fortunately, an academic discussion at present. 

A colleague is about to begin hosting a Ukrainian family who will need to claim UC and raised the following point.

I understand that the family are unable to get any of their capital out of the Ukraine by bank transfer or similar because of the war but they can use their Ukrainian cash point cards to take out money from a UK cashpoint.

Does this mean they could be treated as being in possession of actual capital?
