UKRAINE. Kiev. 1 March 2022.

in the words of Lorenzo Meloni

Today I spent an hour or two on the streets of Kiev. The logistic is very complicated as most of the fixers have left or decided to fight and the same goes for having a driver or just a car. Apart from a bombing on a TV antenna the situation is tense but calm. It’s probably the calm before the storm, as I see from the news that there is a 60km (?!) queue of tanks at the gates of Kiev.

Along the streets I found many barricades and checkpoints set up by citizens. I saw many young people, especially in the suburbs, protecting their neighbourhood. I don't know if they know or not that those barricades won't stop any tanks. But I didn't feel I had to tell them that, if they want to hope so.
