The Least I Can Do

Russia's invasion of Ukraine has evoked certain thoughts and new feelings in me.

A mixture of my boiling rage towards Putin’s actions, the fear of the war moving to Lithuania while I am still abroad, my great-grandmother’s memories, and the leftovers of the Soviet regime in the independent country that I grew up in. As days passed by, I thought of more and more different aspects of this war that I wanted to talk about, so I decided to make this comics. I hope to inspire people to act and do whatever is in their power to help end this escalating invasion.
