A woman taking shelter in a subway station in Kharkiv, Ukraine, told CNN that her world changed overnight as Russia attacked her country.
“You wake up at 5 a.m. to a totally new reality, and you find out the world is no longer the safe place you imagined,” she told CNN’s Clarissa Ward.
“What’s my plan now? I don’t know. For now, we are staying here. To tell you the truth, I hope that Europe and USA, they will support us the most because [Russian President] Putin … understands only the language of power, and I hope they can really put him to sense, if it’s still possible. Because I don’t believe that he will just stop or that it will be a quick war, and I don’t want any people to die here in my land,” she said.
“And it’s hard to believe it’s actually our neighbor doing this, because we never really believed that our neighbor can just come and just grab our land and tell us what to do. We [are an] independent country of Ukraine, and … we don’t want to be a part of Russia or any other country,” she said.
“I cannot believe it’s happening really,” she said, getting visibly emotional. “I just hope that some people in Russia … stand against Putin.”
She said she is with her parents, but some family members are in Canada and are worried about them.
