Russian Protester at Ukrainian Embassy
Courage and determination
On Sunday February 27, 2022, I visited the Embassy of Ukraine, which is a modest building in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC.
I saw this Russian woman in front of the embassy carrying a sign expressing her shame about her country’s invasion of Ukraine. She was able to be present at the embassy and to express her feelings through her sign but seemed unable to look at the camera. I was deeply moved by her courage and determination and I am sharing this image with that spirit in mind.
