Many of the survivors in Ukrainian cities and villages hid from the Russians in basements, too scared to come out. Most of them had no light or electricity for weeks, using candles for heating, water, and cooking. They came out of hiding only when it was clear the Russians had left, welcoming the arrival of Ukrainian troops.
