An exodus appears to be underway in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv after Russian forces bombarded the country Thursday. Traffic data and videos circulating on social media platforms seem to confirm people are fleeing the city as full-scale invasion fears soar.
Location tracking company TomTom reports three highways out of Kyiv are experiencing “major delays” as President Vladimir Putin unleashed a barrage of missiles, artillery, and airstrikes across the country, triggering one of the worst security crises in Europe in more than half a century.
TomTom shows that traffic data in Kyiv has been rising since Monday and could explain people have been fleeing the metro area since Monday (only now it’s a mass panic).
