Caption
22 February , 2022, Kyiv, Ukraine: A day after Vladimir Putin recognised the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent, protesters gathered in front of the Russian embassy in Kyiv. Group of veterans and serving soldiers stages a performance with crosses used for the funerals. Instead of name of the fallen soldier , each cross had words : Russian occupation, instead . Crosses were planted into the ground in front of the Russian Embassy. On February 23 Russia began evacuating its embassy in Kyiv. Ukraine also urged its citizens to leave Russia amid possible further confrontation after President Vladimir Putin received authorization to use military force outside his country and the West responded with sanctions. ©Justyna Mielnikiewicz / MAPS Images / Agentur Focus
