gathers, control regains control that region. so basically cementing in that russian influence in easton, ukraine. that's the big fear here. and certainly that of those 5 our spent in moscow with putin, that macro had just said that really hasn't taken away from those fears. we didn't get much in the way of concrete steps and plans, but there was a sense that was taught from the macro camp of circled finland, ization of ukraine. and back in the cold war, finland was under pretty st. extreme. m a. there were terms that busy didn't allow finland to move to close to west to a native ore the you, you, although it formerly kept its independence, it was limited in what it could do. and the talk of some kind of similar model for ukraine has caused a lot of fear and anxiety here that there were seeing france breaking away from the kind of western unity we've seen in recent weeks about supporting ukraine's freedom to choose its allies and its path in the future, that would have very serious implications for ukraine. how are people, they're reacting to all of their sir? diplomatic activity? was it?
there was an extraordinary disconnect. last few weeks where you had the wills press, talking about these russian tanks, russian soldiers, all ukraine's borders. and being him key of basically it felt like life is normal and people were talking about your new restaurant openings as much they were talking about. the threat of war and i think some slowly, now that is really filtering through the fact that this escalation isn't pulsing as previous escalations have. that russia indeed is seemingly sending further troops to better routes and increasing its military hold. right? you transported, you see people talking of withdrawing money from banks, keeping foreign currency at home, should they needs to leave in a hurry and increasing nervousness that this is not just another blip. another kind of conflict, as we've seen many over the past 8 years since russia and excuse me. but this is generally something more serious. and that if you know the worst would happen that ukraine might not be able to rely on as much support from western european countries as it is thought. des nicolai reporting there in chia for us. thank you.
