Russians fear as Ukraine continues its advance
Russian civilians are questioning Putin’s actions in Ukraine, as Zelensky’s troops get closer and closer to the Russian border.
One Russian in a town on the Russia-Ukraine border wrote on local governor Vyacheslav Gladkov’s Facebook page: “I’m asking once again, where is our army, the one that must be protecting us?.
“We are on the border; they are shooting at us, so we need an army and protection. Who will wake up the President?”
One terrified woman told the New York Times: “It is as if they are already here.”
