Ramiz Alam, a 4th-year medical student in Ternopil in Western Ukraine told Times Now about the uncertainty of the situation.”For now, I’m safe but don’t know what is going to happen next. There is a panic among the people. Many are hoarding food supplies from the markets and few locals have fled to the neighboring countries.
