Russia-Ukraine crisis: Protests have erupted across the world against Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

Protests have erupted across the world against Russia’s attack on Ukraine. The world watched in horror as missiles hit Ukraine on Thursday and explosions went off in several cities. Panicked Ukrainians took shelter in metro stations and subways. Many were seen trying to flee the capital Kyiv.

World leaders, closely watching the Russia-Ukraine crisis, denounced the invasion, warning that it would lead to catastrophic loss of lives, and promised tougher sanctions against Russia.

Some former European leaders quit their positions on Russian boards to register their protest against the country’s actions.

Finland’s ex-Prime Minister Esko Aho stepped down as the director of Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, The Guardian reported. Matteo Renzi, Italy’s former prime minister, resigned from the board of Delimobil, the largest car-sharing service in Russia.
