A mother and her 13-year-old daughter fled a region at war in Ukraine. While telling her story, she was crying about the terrible situation. She saw Russian soldiers in her yard. She felt like they were like her sons and that they represented the whole Soviet Union. She looked at Moscow as the capital of her own country and she could not understand why the Russians were attacking them and how this could happen. She sobbed about the Russian boys who were only 16 years old. They were telling her to run away because there were going to be bombings and that they hoped that she and her daughter would not be killed.
