Inside Ukraine, under Russian attack
'I think you cannot be prepared for this,' says Maksym Kyiak, a pro-democracy activist living in Kyiv
Fears of warfare have become reality this week in Ukraine. A Russian attack is underway — with explosions and shelling filling the skies above Kyiv and troops seizing Ukrainian territory.
On this week's episode of Nothing is Foreign, a world news podcast from CBC News and CBC Podcasts, host Tamara Khandaker speaks with Maksym Kyiak, a pro-democracy activist living in Kyiv, who talks about the mad dash to grab money and supplies as Russian troops move into the capital city and Sara Cincurova, a journalist covering human rights in Kharkiv, who describes the massive lines of desperate people at the train station trying to flee.
"I think you cannot be prepared for this,' said Kyiak.
We explore what sparked these Russian attacks and why now? And what does the future hold for Ukraine?
