Russian Invasion Angers British Expatriates in Ukraine
Russia’s military invasion in Ukraine’s Crimea region has caused widespread anger, the latest show of which has seen British expatriates in Ukraine marching in support of democracy. Many of whom have been disgusted with the way in which Russians have behaved and what they have done.
The vast majority of foreigners in Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine, are fully supportive of the new government in the eastern European country which was once part of the Soviet Union. Many of these current supporters of the new government also supported the protests last month, which resulted in Ukraine’s former president running away from his hostile reality.
Soldiers invade Ukraine’s Crimea region
There is a worry that Russian soldiers could take to Ukraine’s streets replicating the situation in Crimea. Since most of the Ukraine is still functioning normally there is no widespread panic, but everyone in the country is staying alert should they need to run for safety.
Ukrainians and the rest of the world have been shocked by Russia’s military invasion, and even though the developments have been followed closely no one would have thought the situation would have progressed to this stage.
What is definitely felt is a large amount of anger over Russia’s military invasion, with the invaders claiming that this has been done in order to protect Russian citizens. But with nothing threatening Russians, the claim seems a little weak. It is for this reason that the community of British expatriates in Ukraine have become angered over the predicament they find themselves in and the predicament their new country faces.
