Russian Invasion: Coast To Coast Protests Breakout Around The US
Protesters around the US take to their closest capitols to protest Putin's attack on Ukraine. A huge crowd has gathered outside of the White House demanding an end. I guess it's lucky for Biden that he coincidently just reinstalled the fencing around White House grounds, huh?
Despite freezing temperatures, hundreds of protesters in Manhattan marched to the Russian mission to the United Nations, some cloaked in Ukrainian flags and chanting "stop the war" and "stop Russia now." New York City has the largest Ukrainian community in the United States.
The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine is urging Americans not to travel there and to "depart immediately" if they're already in the country, amid Russia's military invasion.
Americans are being encouraged to use commercial or private ground transportation to leave the country since Ukraine's government has closed airspace to commercial flights.
