On the Scene: New York’s Russian Enclave

Corey Kilgannon

Corey Kilgannon��Reporting from Brighton Beach, Brooklyn

Asya Vayner, 87, a Ukrainian immigrant, criticized Mr. Putin’s decision to invade as “a moron doing crazy stuff.”

After living through World War II as children, she told me, “We never thought this generation would have to go through this.”

Nadia Smirnova, 62, who immigrated here from Russia 15 years ago, told me she feared for a nephew in the Russian army. If Mr. Putin “doesn’t care about Ukraine,” she said, “at least consider the Russian soldiers. They have children too.”
