Woman’s Surreal Escape From Ukraine Shows How Putin’s War Is Terrorizing Civilians


Over 3 million Ukrainian families have had to flee their country, quickly making a decision as bombs began to fly. Lyudmila Stebeneva, a former CBN employee, said she is one of the millions of Ukrainian citizens who awoke to the unthinkable last month when Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to invade her nation.

CBN spoke with her today about her harrowing experience escaping the violence.

“[We] went to bed, and we were expecting a beautiful morning,” she said, noting that she and her family anticipated going to school and work like normal. But that reality was shattered when Russia’s invasion began in the early morning hours of February 24. “We were awakened with huge explosions at 5 o’clock in the morning,” Stebeneva said, her eyes welling up with tears throughout the interview.

At first, she assumed something was simply wrong with her home, though it didn’t take long for her and her husband to realize the sounds were coming from Russia’s deadly assault.

“I knew that something wrong was going on, and my husband says, ‘Well, the war has started,’” Stebeneva recalled. “It was very hard to believe. I thought, ‘It’s just a dream.’”
