Sadly, war broke out in Ukraine late last night (eastern time). Many citizens of the Ukraine are feeling cities, heading west towards Poland. In Kyiv, the highways are packed with citizens fleeing. Some decided to stay.

The individuals who decided to say have many reason to. Some are staying to fight, some don’t have the means to flee, and some want to ride it out. Citizens are taking shelter in bomb shelters and subway systems across the city. The mayor of Kyiv has urged the citizens to continue to social distance and remain masked while in these shelters. Many citizens are outraged because there is not enough room in the shelters to house all the people. They are urging the mayor to stop thinking about COVID and the more immediate threat. His response was “we didn’t do all those two years of masking and social distancing so you could just throw it away when there isn’t room, gtfo bro”.
