The Ukrainian government organized evacuations from Kherson by train and appealed to citizens to leave

Nika Selivanova, 13, drew a heart shape with both hands as she waved goodbye to her best friend Inna, who was standing in front of a glass partition separating the entrance hall of the Kherson train station from the waiting area.

Moments before this scene, there was another scene of a warm hug in which tears flowed between Nika and Ina. Ina had also cuddled and kissed Asya, a dachshund wrapped in a blanket to keep her warm, and Nika held her in her arms.

The two girls no longer know when they will meet again.

Nika’s family was leaving Kherson, not sure where they would eventually end up. But for now, they were headed to the western city of Khmelnytskyi, hoping to get some help there.
